The last two lace-wrapped pieces (#27 and #54) that I made sold pretty fast so here's another.
This time, I wrapped some baby blue vintage lace I bought from an old lady at a market in Canberra. It's a shame that the lace is made from a synthetic material (the first time that I've used a non-natural fabric for the New Jewels, I believe!) but it's pretty hard to find cotton ones that are coloured these days and in the right width for this purpose.
I hope its prettiness will make up for it! And don't you worry! It's not rough on your skin. I wouldn't have used it otherwise.
