French style wrist cuff

 This is a beautiful up cycled wrist cuff crafted from the sleeve of a  bargain  bin wedding gown.I took the wrist part of the sleeve and added the handcrafted velvet flowers. I used vintage lace, a vintage button, silk ribbon, to create the design of the cuff.
 A back view of the cuff so you can see how pretty the covered button and loop closing looks.
                                               Here is a close up of the back.
This is some detail of the finishing touches on the front of the cuff. The ribbon is silk and the lace applique has crystals hand sewn to the centers of each flower. This is so lovely, a great formal look, and so very  Chic with jeans and heels.
