I have never really thought of myself as a lacey kind of girl but the more I work with old lace the more I appreciate it. The detail and amount of work that goes into handmade lace is amazing. My favorite is the super old, super fine, and super fragile and I don’t mind if it has holes and stains. I love to take a piece of old crochet lace and upcycle it into a fun and trendy piece of jewelry.
I tea-dyed this one and added turquoise color stone drops and a silver button.
How cute this would be with my favorite white tee!
I added pearl drops and a pearl button to this black piece to dress it up.
I guess I’m a lacier girl than I thought…
Both looks can be found in my web shop.

I too love old lace. I am currently washing and ironing my size able collection of vintage pillow cases. The handmade, especially the tasted laces, amaze me.
Your jewelry is so lovely. I am not gifted in that way and would not have had the imagination to create such pretty adornments! Tea dying is something I love to do but I haven’t tried lace! Great job!
Good Afternoon to you, I love the name Tarnished Royalty and it peeked my interest, so I popped over from Richella’s blog, Imparting Grace to say hello. This is such a beautiful way to re-use vintage lace…. you are bringing it to the attention of a new generation.
The black piece really stands out against the white pearls…. it is really lovely.
I have enjoyed my visit, and I have become a new follower.
I would like to invite you to visit me at Ivy, Phyllis and Me! when you have the time. It would be lovely to see you there.
Best Wishes from England,

I am not a girly girl but I love old lace too! Looks good with just plain old jeans don’t you think? Both pieces are beautiful! Thanks for sharing them with SYC.
I’d say you are a lacy girl! What beautiful things you create. Thank you for sharing them!
Very elegant and delicate. Absolutely love it, especially one with the pearl drops.
