Turkish needle lace necklace with plump strawberry, delicate flowers and greenery
The plump berry, delicate flowers and greenery that dangle at the end of this needle lace necklace are just as sweet as the taste of real berries. This piece really allows you to play with contrasting colours and texture in your outfit. The red berry and beads look divine with deminy blues, and the necklace gives wooly jumpers and chunky cable knits a delicate, feminine touch.
This jewellery is individually hand made in Turkey, as it has been for many centuries.
Patterns are created by knotting the high-quality silk or cotton thread with a small needle.
The history of Turkish Needlework – or Needle Lace – goes back to the roots of Turkish traditional hand crafts and society. The flower designs, many of which you can see in the A Keles Collection, go back to a time when women would make keepsakes for their husbands in times of war.
