About Me

Elizabethan Beaded Trim and Costume Accessories

Here's where you can find the perfect beaded trim, aiglette, billiment,  chain, or other costume accessory. If you don't see it here, please ask. If you have a picture or portrait you're trying to duplicate, send me a web link, say 'I want that necklace!' and I'll let you know if it is something I can do. Yes, I do custom work. Yes, I do custom sizes, if you need 2 inches or 22 feet of beaded trim, just let me know. 

 

Trim! Trim! Trim!

Lots of shapes, colors, and sizes. If you want something to embellish your bodice, edge your cuffs, or even wear around your neck, try here. Did I mention that I do custom work? If you have something that you need matched, send me a link or mail me a snip, and I'll do my best. 

Aiglettes

These can be used in your hair, on the ends of your cords and ties, at the edges of slashed sleeves, or I can make a pair into earrings. I can make sets of 1 or 100 or more, and again, I can match your costume. For examples of aiglettes in use, check out Gheeraert's portrait of Queen Elisabeth (the pearls in her hair are aiglettes) or  Charles de Solier, Lord of Morette by Hans Holbein, c. 1534-35 (he has aiglettes where his sleeves are slashed) and Margaret Audley, Duchess of Norfolk by Hans Eworth, 1562 (her sleeves are covered with pairs of aiglettes).

I can match your costume. Click here for an example of how it would be done.

Many kudos to www.tudor-portraits.com and the Web Gallery of Art, who I have gone to again and again for Elizabethan and Tudor portraits.

Accessory Chains

Have you ever wanted to be able to hang your fan or pomander from your belt with a bit more style than a bit of cord or a strip of leather? Try these beaded chains.

Arrrrr matey! Every pirate prefers properly piratey pretties!

And a bit of Chainmaille

Well, one needs to have chainmaille. We make ours from hand-wound and cut aluminum links, some of which are either anodized or enameled for a nice range of colors. Chainmaille, it's not just for people anymore! Click either picture for a larger view.

Other Stuff

The hubby makes very lovely chainmaille girdle belts, and I'm working on beaded pomanders, and possibly a very teeny tiny girdle book (I have an idea, I just haven't tried it out yet)
