Beading Added to Lace Trims

When it comes to bridalwear, lace is a timeless favorite. Its delicate patterns and intricate designs exude romance and elegance. Now, imagine enhancing this beauty with a touch of sparkle! Custom beading offers a personalized touch, turning a stunning lace design into a true masterpiece.

I can add on custom beading to any one of my lace designs. This is a wonderful way to tie in the sparkle from your dress. I recommend choosing a complimentary style of beading to the beading used on your wedding dress.

1. Glam Beading: Rhinestone

For those seeking a more pronounced sparkle, rhinestone beading is the perfect choice. It catches the light beautifully and adds a touch of glamour to the ensemble.

2. Understated Beading: Clear and Silver Lined Czech Beading 

Subtle and understated, this style adds a touch of shimmer without overpowering the lace's intricate details.

3. Timeless Beading: Pearls

I know you have a pearl necklace somewhere in your jewelry box! Pearls have a unique allure that transcends trends and fads. Their natural luster and gentle iridescence have made them a symbol of sophistication throughout history. When strategically placed within lace patterns, pearls can transform a beautiful design into a breathtaking work of art.
