Paris inspired creation!

I have been feeling particularly inspired this week after acquiring a new supply of laces.  Many are white or off white and date back to the 1950's, some lovely new old-stock laces that are simply divine.  But I also recieved some black French style laces, and my mind stepped out of its comfort zone of Bridal garters of white silk satins with their special "something blue" added, and designed this very Paris inspired garter.  Hand dyed silk satin ribbons in turquiose combined beautifully with the black lace.  I then added black feathers, a silk ribbonwork flower with Swarovski crystal center, and gold-edged ribbon "leaves".  All I can say is,  oh la la!!!
