A few weeks back I found a bag of beaded silk fabric in a zip bag for 1.00
It was the last day of this estate sale and I thought it might be destined for the trash, so I grabbed it up and figured that it would just go into my very large pile of "new to do something with" stash. Oh well.
Once home, after sorting through lots of other treasures from that sale, I got around to the zip bag and opened it. It was the very sad remnants of what was a super gorgeous 1920s dress. Peach silk chiffon, with white and silver beads throughout. Totally shredded. The only thing that has kept this fabric from complete disintegration was the beaded areas that were backed with extra stitching.
I may have cried with sadness at first while cutting through the crumbling silk, but soon I cried with joy as I completed the first pair of earrings from its remains. I have already worn the long dangling silver pair many times. They are so lightweight and barely skim the shoulders. There is so much beading on this dress that I have made many pair and I thought I could share them with you.
I want this dress to live many more happy lives, in beautiful places with beautiful people like you.
