Fabric Friday - Textiles in Jewellery

After a week of looking at sparkly colourful gems and their designers I am in a quandry as to how I can finish with a jewellery inspired Fabric Friday.  Off the top of my head I can't think of a designer who prints pictures of jewels on textiles, but please correct me if there is anybody!  My likely choices for such designs would be hinting towards Michael Miller or Alexander Henry, but I have planned to feature them soon.  So I think the best solution will be to look at textiles in jewellery design.  I have seen some gorgeous fabric covered beads over the past few months and I know bib necklaces have become a possible new item to accessorise your outfit but I am still not convinced about these. Can fabric be used in this design medium effectively?  Let's see.....
















I stand corrected, you can buy some great textile jewellery.

Have a great weekend!

buttons and fabric and badges, oh my! Far too much gorgeousness, especially for someone like me that can't wear regular jewellery because of metal allergy! Thanks for sharing!
