Description

Purple ribbon nautilus brooch with iridescent peacock colour seed beads.

This dark purple ribbon Nautilus brooch has been made using a vintage millinery trimming technique and embellished with iridescent seed beads in peacock shades of gold, green and purple.

Petersham ribbon is hand pleated and hand stitched to create a “nautilus” shell shape.

During the 1950’s this technique was used to create whole hats, but only by couture milliners. Due to the laborious process and the skill required to make them, this technique is not suitable for mass production.

This technique is now only used by a handful of milliners due to its complexity.

The brooch measures approximately 6cm (2.5 inches) wide and 6cm (2.5 inches) tall.

Backed with felt, this ribbon brooch has a 2.5cm (1 inch) pin with a safety clasp.

This brooch will be sent in a white square gift box.

For more background to the Nautilus technique and my journey of discovery, read my blogs here.
