Marie Antoinette Bracelet

The film Marie Antoinette is so visually stunning and full of beautiful colours that you simply can't watch it and not be inspired to create something!

I wanted to make something that had an almost feathery look to it, as exotic feathers were 
all the rage to adorn fans and hats in Marie Antoinette's day.

So I made this looped bracelet as it kind of reminds me of a fluffy feather bower.
Of course the colours had to include a lavish amount of pink and gold! 

(This bracelet design was the beginning steps of a project in Bead Magazine 
made in my own Marie Antoinette inspired colour way.) 

It was such a tough life being Marie Antoinette's pet...


  1. I love the toggle closure, brilliant! And yes Marie's dogs had it bad ;-)

  2. I love this! What a wonderful way to translate the aesthetic of the film into a beautiful bracelet. Lovely job! I LOVED that movie, by the way. :) And actually, I'm seeing some wine , a pastry, beading and the film in my evening plans tonight!

  3. Thanks for the compliments.

    Helen ethel - It's a fab movie isn't it :-)
    I just loved all the gorgeous costumes and mouth watering diamond jewellery!
    Let alone all the cute pastries -
    You definitely need to eat cake whilst watching it!
    Have fun beading :-)
