SALT + PEPPER
Fabric Free Two-Piece Beaded Fringe Ensemble
This amazing 25-pound design is made exclusively from over half-a-million vintage, German, special-cut seed beads and Japanese silver-lined beads. It does not contain one stitch of fabric; was completely done by hand and took five people more than 1500 hours over a period of nine months to complete.
The foundation of this dress is made from Japanese, silver-lined glass beads that give an underlying diamond like appeal to the whole outfit. Hundreds of thousands of vintage German beads and Japanese beads were then strung, cut and individually hand layered on top to become the hundreds of fringes of this ensemble.
The accessories are made with black onyx and vintage and modern Swarovski crystal beads. The headpiece is made from spun black chicken feathers and specially stripped rooster tail feathers.
