I’ve made more than 10 corsets in the past month, and badly need to slow down over the next few weeks before I burn out. After that we’ll be moving shop, but I will have loads of cute samples like these for sale soon!
This ‘Opal Hearts’ corset is one of the most rewarding and difficult projects I’ve worked on. My client asked me to take creative freedom designing something inspired by opal gemstones. I decided to go over the top with hand painted lace, extensive beadwork, iridescent organza insets, and a challenging pattern inspired by the Kops Heart patent.
