Corset Bling

We had a special request from stylist Tiffany Gifford to create custom black leather corset that could have interchangeable Bling for Shawna Thompson of Thompson Square. The first bit of bling we created for Shawna’s corset was variety of jewels, beads, and chains.

We took a variety of jewels we had in the studio covered them in our trade secret glue that is the strongest glue around, and dipped them in cool beads.

We then glued the beaded jewels to a piece of cotton Coutil and wrapped them in chains. The trim was attached to the corset by metal hooks that were sewn into the Coutil.

The finished corset looked amazing! The embellishments added something special to the basic black leather corset! The best part is that the bling is removable! Stay tuned to see what embellishments Tiffany requests next – maybe studs, flowers… we can create anything she can dream up!! It was a good craft day at ani&ari 🙂
