I adore Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer and can never get enough of books on the Regency era. The Regency period was ruled by elegance and etiquette and was characterized by distinctive trends in British culture, fashions, politics, and architecture.
A lovely young lady who I have the pleasure to know lives in Germany and is very involved in Regency dancing. Her wonderful mother helps make her dresses so I thought that a filigree wrapped vintage piece would work beautifully with the style of the period.
And then I went crazy making earrings that would dangle and gleam in a ballroom! What fun!
