Monika Knutsson

The Gilded Lace collection is jewelry designed and made by Monika Knutsson, a third generation lace artist. The jewelry is made from early to mid – 1900’s lace that is dipped in Sterling Silver, 18K Pink Gold or 24k Yellow Gold. Many times, Monika finds the lace at various flea markets in Paris, Berlin and New York. Find out more about the Cuban Lace collection here. The vintage lace is hand-made and mostly comes from petticoats, corset covers, and the bottoms of bloomers. Her inspiration for the designs comes from studying the way lace was fitted on men’s and women’s clothing during the first half of the 20th century. The gilded lace collection is a beautiful choice for bridal wear accessories, and will stand out in any event.
