Fringe design lace bracelet
The Fringe lacelet cuff is a piece from a new departure into texture. It’s a lace bracelet approximately 2cm wide, with a fringe made of light and dark thread. The fringing process makes the thread twist to give an ombre effect. The lace motif is ‘Forget Me Not’, a wee five sided flower, making a simple edge to secure the fringe. The lacelet is fastened with a pearl button.
When we began designing together for PorceLace, my challenge to Samantha was to work with colour and hers to me was to throw off my love of perfection, finished edges and smoothness. Turns out that I rather enjoy a bit of irregularity and texture! After spending some time in the Nottingham Trent University Lace Archive, I’ve seen how Nottingham Lace engineers and designers were pushing the boundaries of what they could make as far back as the 1890s. It only seemed right that I continue that tradition.
So I bring you Fringe. This ‘lacelet’ lace cuff bracelet is part of a Fringe range including a neck lace, earrings and a brooch. It is available in three colourways, coral, peacock and black. Other colours are available, but may take a bit longer to produce as they will be made to order. Contact me to get your perfect colour combination.
