DIY Great Gatsby Pearl Bracelet Applique and Ring Combination Tutorial from M&J here. A great place to find less expensive appliques is in the bridal section of fabric and craft stores. My first clothing splurge was on an authentic 1920s peacock motif beaded dress that I will post when I take a photo that does it justice.
