The process of handcrafting Gilded Lace jewelry is effort and time-intensive. First, the lace is cut with precision. The edges are sealed by hand-sewing on ribbons. Then the lace is sealed and shaped by dipping it into lacquer and molding it (e.g., around a drinking glass for cuff bracelet designs) to its final shape.
After a dip in a bath of either sterling silver or 24K gold, The jewelry is filed by hand. Every hold is carefully smoothed to ensure a comfortable fit and that the lace pattern is clearly visible down to the finest detail. The jewelry is then shined and ready to wear.
All Gilded Lace Jewelry by Monika Knutsson is made in limited editions, signed, numbered and handcrafted in the U.S.A.
Tracy and I met very stylish Monika Knutsson and her Gilded Lace Jewelry when her mom-in-law introduced us. I instantly fell in love with her aesthetic. Her look is classic Chanel and her jewelry is extraordinary. Monica hand-sews antique or vintage lace, forms them into cuffs or earrings or necklaces, then dips them in 24k gold, rose gold or sterling silver. I've worked with Monika for over a decade on many bridal projects created from family heirloom lace (Mom's or Bride's dress) and preserved for all time. It's definitely a labor of love. - Lisa
