Antique lace necklace

Some years ago I was shopping in the city of Nijmegen. By accident I came across an antique store. Normally that kind of shop doesn’t have my special interest. But somehow this time I decided to take a look. Quite quickly my eyes fell on a basket with antique textiles in it. Especially a lace collar caught my attention. All of a sudden I got the idea to make a necklace of it.

Monkey see monkey do. Once home again I started working out my thoughts. In the following weeks I embroidered small green glass beads on the lace, some patience was definitely needed! Around Christmas I finished it and could proudly wear it at the family dinner.
