A one-of-a-kind, hand-stitched beaded cape. Made from vintage beads, findings, and Swarovski crystals. Worn with magnets to keep the cape in place whether on top of an evening gown, blazer, sweater, or coat. It was made in conjunction with the London Fashion Week collection. Another piece of statement jewelry stating that jewelry is art!

A one-of-a-kind black, gold, & teal magnetic epaulette worn for an asymmetrical adornment to a blazer, dress, or sweater from London Fashion Week.
An epaulette is an adornment worn on the shoulder of one's outfit; think military, marching band or my inspiration the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. This epaulette, however, is not limited to just shoulder wearing. Created to be worn on the runway of London Fashion Week. The magnets allow this piece to be worn not just through the thicker materials of a blazer or sweater, but also along the back of a dress at the top of the waistline, creating a pop of fun for just the right dress. Or perhaps even along the top of a blazer pocket, mimicking menswear's current obsession with pocket squares and lapel pins as well as offering a throwback to brooches.
