Design inspiration: Lace theme

Time for some more design inspiration – this time I'm addicted to lace. There are so many different styles and lace patterns to choose from, and when translated into silver or gold, the delicate filigree always looks so beautiful and feminine.

I've picked a few examples of some lovely lace-inspired jewellery designs to spark some thoughts…

Which one is your favourite? I personally love number 3 the best, such a whimsical lace filigree design.


If you’re struggling for inspiration, find your nearest fabric store and get a couple of small samples of different lace they have in stock. Vintage clothes shops are another great source. If you don’t have access to a fabric store, there are lots of great lace patterns to be found online, like this one below...

  1. Number 5 is my favourite, but totally impractical. Would get caught in hair, collar, scarf etc etc!

    Second favourite is number 2, although I'm not sure it's very lacey - it reminds me more of frothy waves :-)
