Materials Used

I use a variety of materials in my creations, each giving special properties to the product. Here are some of the materials commonly used.

Ribbon

Ribbon

From high quality US grosgrain to delicate organza, the base of all Simply Elegant bows starts with ribbon. I’ll try to find ribbon in any color, pattern, size or theme you can imagine.

Tulle

Tulle

From being the main ingredient in my tutus to being a wonderful splash of color on a bow, tulle can be found in a variety of colors.

Fabrics

Fabrics

Various fabrics can be applied to ribbon to make unique bows. Fabric strips can be added to tutus and tulle skirts to make anything possible. I’ll work with you to find a fabric option that fits your style.

Sequins / Embellishments

Embellishments

From unique vintage pieces to handcrafted polymer clay, anything can become an embellishment. I have used sequins, feathers, dollhouse miniatures, upcycled watch gears and much more to create truly custom pieces.

Rhinestones

rhinestones

All rhinestones are hand-set. Unless otherwise specified, anything called a rhinestone, bling, stone or gem refers to a foil-backed acrylic piece designed to look like a gemstone. If you are interested in specific materials such as crystals or genuine Swarovski crystal, please fill out our Custom Orders form.

Personalizations

At this time I do not offer vinyl lettering/personalization, however personalization can be obtained using rhinestones by spelling out a name or drawing an object. Ask me also about having your own photographs printed on bows and fabrics as well.
