I’ve been innondated by demanding commissions ie rush jobs and requests this past couple of weeks so I was delayed in uploading some new books. I did manage to upload a couple of beauties which haven’t been detailed here as yet. The platinum color piece with champagne gold lace is a one of kind unique item. The lace is three dimensional and absolutely equisite. It had no foundation so I mounted it on cotton netting and added scattered crochet pearls. I hope to finish new books this week for the portfolio which has been depleated. I like to keep up a full page of new books ready for the taking. Best Debbie
This beautiful handmade guipure flower is embroidery into a three dimensional design and an original work, pre-1930s. Bordered by handmade torchon lace and crocheted pearls in ivory and distributed through the net. There are a million tiny details such as the tiny little netting in the center of the flower and the wound thread surrounding each petal. 100 pages of 85 lb Archival laid writing papers compose the interior cream color.

A little history:
Guipure (Ge-Pure’). A French word signifying vellum lace. “Vellum” means ” parchment,” and parchment is sheep-skin, tanned and bleached white fit for writing or printing on. ” Cartisane ” is another French word signifying a long thin strip of parchment or vellum rolled round and completely covered with twisted silk. To produce Guipure lace, the old French lace-makers first formed the outlines of the intended pattern of these car-tisanes, they being held together at various points by stitches called “brides ” or “bars,” worked with the needle. These minute cords or car-tisanes were either arranged so as to touch one another, and be sewed together often enough for solidity, or were attached in the form of a figure by the “brides.”
