Today I am sharing another of the “Magical Creatures” from the Fashion Show I collaborated on with The House of Findings back in early Spring. The “1920’s Rose Fairy” is covered in sparkle from head to toe. The opulence of this overly-embellished dress has always lent itself to the styling of the 1920’s. You may remember it from my Great Gatsby Shoot (which you can see here). I included some of the photos from that shoot below.
This rose headpiece is one of my absolute favorite pieces of wearable art from all of the Jankele Collections. I included some close-up photos of it below. You have probably figured out by now that I love to wear headpieces. One of the challenges of wearing head gear is getting them to stay comfortably in place. Even though this creation is super heavy (from the weight of the 9000 Swarovski crystals), it lays on the head so perfectly it feels like it is part of your body.
In addition to the dress and rosette headpiece, the accessories also scream the opulence of the 1920’s. The necklace and earrings are a set that I found from the 1920’s. The rhinestones are “bezel set”, which was the most common way to set stones in jewelry during the Art Deco Era. Art Deco Jewelry is my favorite and, while I have collected many pieces over the years, I have never seen bezel-set stones set in a globe shape. I included a close up of the piece below following the pictures from the show. I love how the peach hue of the sequin slippers pull together the look. Finally, no fairy would be complete without a set of wings. These dainty, silver wings were handmade by Cosmic Unicorns for The House of Findings.
