Lace, bling and a fine needle!

Charity shop bling and collected lace.
Old lace, including some dyed blue and a pair of charity shop brooches.
 Going to wedding shops with Amy yesterday has inspired me to bring out the old lace pieces and bits of bling collected over the years to see what can be made. I'm particularly thinking of the lengths of ribbon we saw with sparkly stones sewn to the centre that are sold as wedding dress belts for an extra £200. Then there's the simple pearl necklaces and drop pearl earrings, the tiaras ... until you have a wedding in the family it's a massive industry you're unaware of.  I'm wondering whether to build towards a wedding corner at Handmade Happiness. Not wedding dresses, just accessories.
