Throughout history, awards and honors have been given by various royal families to trusted citizens and those that have contributed in one way or another to the royal family or country. These honors are often in the form of beautiful bejewelled ornaments that are worn as part of the regalia during formal occasions, around the neck on a piece of ribbon or pinned to the gown.

Le Bijou Perle is one such ornament awarded to those who have achieved the royal Order of the Rocaille in the Land of Beadery. Only to be worn during formal beading occasions, Le Bijou Perle hangs like a gleaming jewel from a delicate organza ribbon. A glittering pear shaped Swarovski crystal is surround by 69 other smaller sparkly crystals in a delicate web of rocailles.

A clever network of varying sizes and number of beads hold the many crystals in place framing the jewel. The elegant organza ribbons are simply tied at the back adjusting to whatever length you prefer and the tails left flowing romantically behind. Utilising techniques from bead embroidery and bead weaving, Le Bijou Perle is definitely a must for those who are part of the royal Order of the Rocaille.
