Three Ivory Fascinators

These are three ivory fascinators I made between 2006/2007.

The first one is decorated with ivory silk organdie which has been hand rolled to form roses's and pointed leaves. It also has rouleaux of ivory raw silk and is adorned with cream/very pale lemon coloured marabou feathers, white goose feathers and mother-of -pearl and crystal beading.

This is all set on an oyster coloured straw fascinator base which has been covered in cream coloured silk lace.

This was one of the first fascinators I have made.

The second shown here is lighter ivory/off white. Decorated with hand cut white goose feathers and curled white biot goose feather arranged around two white feather 'flowers', sparkling with diamante and crystal beads.
Towards the back of the fascinator there is a wide ivory silk ribbon and around the base are bows of white merry widow veiling.

The third, is a more darker shade of ivory, almost oyster coloured.
Sitting on an oyster straw base sits an oyster raw silk bow which has diamante and freshwater pearl beadwork at the centre.
This fascinator has height from a large ivory burnt ostrich feather which has been curled and decorated with diamante stones.
