Elegant Victorian Inspired Antique Lace Choker with Rhinestone Trim and Brooch

Marie Antoinette meets Victorian Damsel.

This antique lace choker is one of my favorite to date. It's fashioned from several different antique and vintage laces and I've sewn nearly 90% of the choker by hand so it's been made to last. There's metallic embroidered trim at the bottom hem and rhinestone beaded trim at the top, both salaveged from flapper dresses. I've sewn a large baroque-style brooch to the center and added more sparkly baubles to the botton. It closes at the back of the neck with Victorian brass flower buttons and loops. The entire choker has been backed with soft white netting and more white cotton vintage lace. Measures 13 & 1/4" around and about 2 & 3/4" wide.
