Wedding Dresses

Peggy still works for Fashion Houses,
beading from her own home in Norfolk,
although she told us she had really retired!
It was very apt with Prince William and Kate's wedding this month
Peggy showed us some wedding dress samples and pictures.
This is a section sample of a recent wedding dress.
the layering of the beads to form flowers are beautiful.
Peggy's Husband sources all her beads and motifs for her from
around the world. Often taking days to find the right ones.
Creative Beads for a supplier they use.
Peggy beaded Princess Diana's wedding veil
using over 10,000 3mm pearl sequins.
See this really good article about the dress which mentions Peggy here

View this amazing video to see how some tambour beading is done.
