home-made jewellery in the'40's

In the fourties women used to make jewellery at home with felt, wood, plastic and wire because of the lack of jewellery in the shops. During the war only identifications bracelets, cuff-links, studs and wedding rings were allowed to be manufactured, only under licence.
This because, only the most necessary articles were permitted to be manufactured.
A lot of magazines came out with do-it-yourself versions using unlikely materials to make your own brooches and necklaces etc.
Here some instructions of buttonholes, necklaces and brooches.

Also today this technic is still used, I think that these brooches are really beautiful...

Have a good day...

Do you know already Mr.Pearl?
One of the most important corsets makers of the moment?
He lives in paris and he made corsets for Christian Dior, Vivienne Westwood, John Galliano, etc. He is the man with the smallest waist. So strange...His works are art pieces, beautiful.


Chantal Thomass- vintageopulence's shop- victoria's secret

A corset lover is the beautiful Dita von Teese. She has a collection of 100 corsets!

I really love this item, I still don't have one but I think that my next present will be a vintage corset. It's so elegant and retrò.

What do you think? Would you wear it?
