I created a collection of these gorgeous textile jewelry pieces by Krista R for those who aren't familiar with her work: http://www.polyvore.com/krista_collection/collection?id=3644588. For me they're exquisite pieces of art and rare treasures. If you style one of these beauties please tag me as I'd love to see your set!

Creating textile jewelry has evolved into a passion and a process of meditation where time stops for Krista. The technique she uses has evolved from 10 years of hand sewing and beading experience, and her visions are influenced by the historical costumes, ball gowns and accessories of past centuries, as well as by antique textiles, Pre-Raphaelite paintings and the colors of nature. She describes the feel of creating her signature pieces close to painting a picture with threads and beads.

Krista calls her technique of freehand embroidery “intuitive sewing”, since most designs are created without any sketches. Over the years, Krista has learned to trust the sense of color and the feel of material and texture completely. Her embroidered textile accessories are one-of-a-kind or very limited edition of 2-3 pieces due to the rare antique and vintage materials used and the intuitive process of creating. Her favorite fibers to work with are natural: silk, cotton, mohair and linen. Krista has a background in professional jewelry and graphic design, and she started her line of distinctively hand-embroidered accessories about ten years ago. She loves to experiment with different embroidery techniques, mix details/textures and discover fresh color harmonies.

Collaboration proposals and contest requests accepted ONLY from Jewelry Designers and Jewelry Retailers. Please, send your proposals to moodboards@seznam.cz
Peplum's group is all about Jewelry in Fashion - jewelry, watches, gemstones and everything related to it.
Jewelry is a craftsmanship of artisans that are creating or making these precious pieces and defining fashion and lifestyle. No matter the individual purchasing power, jewelry in fashion was, is and will always be the fashion statement that lasts.
All sets containing or emphasizing jewelry are welcomed. Although it can be applied to any of the 3 Polyvore main groups: fashion, home and art - fellow Polyvorean’s that mainly create interior design sets are also invited to join Peplum’s group and post relevant sets. When it comes to jewelry, there are plenty of opportunities to express your creativity: weddings, anniversaries, proms and other numerous occasions that need venues and gardens matching e.g. bride and broom’s lifestyle, which of course includes the jewelry they wear.
Membership in this group is by invitation or application, and is limited to 5000 members.
Let's take Jewelry in Fashion to the next level, the Polyvore way!
