The recent Downton Abbey frenzy has got me thinking a lot about how much time and care women used to spend getting dressed each day, often several times a day to accomodate different activities.
I've also been pondering the life of those people behind the glamorous scenes, from a couturier at the finest fashion house in Paris, to a private lady's maid, like the sweet Anna or conniving O'Brien.
These necklaces pay homage to all such women, and the preparation that goes on in the boudoir...
from the simple mending of a button,
to creating the latest coiffure, and all without the modern technology we rely on today.
Thank you for stopping by and please stay tuned next time when I announce my upcoming give-away! :)
