Welcome!

This ongoing project is an effort to scan craft pattern publications that are in the public domain, to preserve them, so we can keep our craft heritages in our hands. Most of these scans have been graphically edited to make the images easier for craft workers to see, and to reduce file sizes. They are available, for free, to anyone who wants them, for educational, personal, artistic and other creative uses.

Victorian beaded necklace

Antique-Victorian-Mourning-Necklace-Pendant-Faceted-Glass-and-Brass-Seed-Beads/142632500878

From the item listing: A stunning, rare early Victorian loom seed beaded mourning necklace with pendant. Each decorative piece is connected by 8 strands of beads. The seed beads are black faceted glass and faceted brass. The brass seed beads being those that detail the motifs of flies/bees and outside edges of the connecting strands. They also form the laurel leaf motif on the pendant. The laurel leaves on this necklace would represent peace and triumph, and worldly accomplishment, while the fly, being a popular Victorian naturalist motif was a symbol of humility. In 1860 Victorians had a passion for wearing all things insects and this necklace is a fabulous example of this vogue.

Contact Judith or Sytske via the Yahoo group, or send a mail to the info address above. Thank you!
