The "Jane" Collection
Queen Jane Seymour, c. 1536
Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna
My most popular design to date!
This set is inspired by the portrait of Queen Jane Seymour shown above.
This is a very versatile single-length belt, which connects with dual hinged clasps anywhere along its entire length. The acrylic stones used in this design are 18x13mm smooth domed cabochons, and the pearls are 8mm imported glass. Sizes shown below denote the entire length of the belt.
Unless you request otherwise, this girdle will include support pins that are affixed to two settings along your belt's center drop. These pins will help to keep your drop's length in place as you move around during your event.
"Jane" Carcanet Necklace *
The acrylic stones used in this carcanet (choker-style) necklace are 18x13mm smooth domed cabochons (above in ruby), with a 25x18mm stone with an attached teardrop pearl at the center front of the piece. The 8mm pearls are imported glass (above in cream). A three inch extender chain has been added to lengths listed below, which makes it perfect for wearing on a bare neck, while being adjustable to fit over high-necked partlets.
"Jane" Cotiere Necklace
This item is the longer of the two necklaces shown above. Commonly called a "cotiere", this type of necklace is frequently seen in period portraits as being without pendants and being tucked into the front of a gown's bodice.
The acrylic stones used in this necklace are 18x13mm smooth domed cabochons. The 8mm pearls are imported glass. This piece connects with a spring-hinge clasp at the back and has two small jumprings at the bottom center front to help it lie flat on the chest. When paired with the choker-style necklace, this set is a true show-stopper!
"Jane" Jeweled Collar
The "Jane" collar's design consists of 25x18mm smooth acrylic cabochon stones (above in ruby) set in lace-bordered settings linked by hand-wired pairs of oversized 10mm round imported glass pearls (above in cream).

Measuring 13-14" in length and 6" in height at its center, this regal crown is made from two separate layers of ornate filigree pieces and pearl clusters that are hand-wired together, making for a sure-fire show-stopping headpiece. The perfect must-have crown for Faire Queens and Renaissance Brides.
Your 5-pearl clusters are made from glass pearls ranging in size from 8mm to a huge 12mm. The oversized teardrop pearls are hand-wired onto the crown, and are glass-based. All stones are acrylic.
The "crowning glory" to any Renaissance emsemble! The majority of the acrylic stones used in this circlet headpiece are 14x10mm smooth domed cabochons in lace-bordered settings, with a larger 18x13mm stone at the center front of the piece. The 12x7mm teardrop pearl and 6mm round pearls used are imported glass.
These circlets are available with two wearing options: "closed circle" and "open back with ribbons".
"Closed circle" circlets are designed to rest atop the head, situated above the temple line and dipping slightly forward at the center front. They sit lower on the bust used for the photos because there is no hair to take up the space, and should be worn more like they are in the image below:
"Open back with ribbons" circlets will be open at the back center of the piece, with silk ribbons attached for tying.
Child-sized pieces will average between 16" and 18", and adult-sized headpieces will average between 18" and 20", depending on the design's pattern.
If you need a larger piece to accommodate a bulkier hairstyle or fit at the temple line, be sure to order ther "adult plus" size, which will measure between 20-23".
"Jane" Beaded Rete/Cap
Blissfully simple and simply blissful! Made with 8mm imported glass pearls, this beaded cap is the perfect solution to any head-covering needs you could ever have! It attaches easily with hair (bobby) pins, and is sure to match any gown you have in your wardrobe. It is my most-requested item for Renaissance-themed weddings.
"Jane" Jeweled Headband
This beaded and jeweled headband is perfect for making your modern hair look very much in Renaissance-Era style. Made with 8mm imported glass pearls and 18x13mm stone/setting combinations. Choose to have your headband either hand-wired onto a nickel-plated metal-frame headband or free-flowing (as pictured above) with ribbons for tying.
Double-pearl Bilament (Beaded Trim)
This hand-wired pearl and jeweled trim is sold by the inch and should be hand-sewn onto your garments. As a reference and as shown above, each 18x13mm stone/setting combination is paired with 8mm pearls - each section of this size measures approximately 1". The 14x10mm stone/setting combinations are paired with 6mm pearls, and the 25x18mm stone/setting combinations are paired with 10mm pearls.
Please order the total length of trim you need - I will contact you after I receive your order to inquire about the specific dimensions you need to fit along your garments' seams and/or around your garments' corners.

Select your ostrich drab feather plumes (shown in red), hackle feathers (shown in black), jewel colors, and accent paint colors to create a fan that will be the perfect compliment to any Renaissance Court gown.
Your custom-made wooden handle will be finshed with a matching glass beaded chain for hanging.
