Red and Black Heart

This red and black heart is my new Cluny Polychrome design.

More than a hundred bobbins and a little dexterity with the Tallies are required…

Around 50 hours of work are needed for this spectacular work which can be framed or even better, sewn to a jacket or a party dress!

Bayeux Chantilly

This Chantilly lace is a model from Bayeux’s conservatory, a marvel crafted with 140 Egyptian cotton and without a diagram.

Fleur de Lys

Orange Fleur de Lys made using polychrome lace, ideal for a black or dark dress. Crafted with 4/20 black silk and 150 den lasa silk.

Dress with lace

Torchón. Bolillos Arzhela

This work has been crafted together with a dress designed by Begoña Ramos to which the lace has been added.

This is a simple lace, which requires only knowledge on how to finish the lace using the new techniques existing nowadays.

It requires 176 bobbins for the front piece and 118 for each of the back pieces. It has been crafted using Bockens 100 black linen.

Lace for curtain

Torchón. Bolillos Arzhela

A really simple lace which adds plaits to the Torchon lace creating a beautiful curtain with a bit of color thanks to the design beads.

Interlaced Square Mats

Tonder. Bolillos Arzhela

This is a great example of my work with Torchon lace. I try to blend simplicity with something a little more original. This mat looks amazing, for example, over a shoe cabinet. It requires 58 bobbins with 120 linen thread and some beads.

Headdress

Tonder. Bolillos Arzhela

This is a little example of what can be done with Tonder lace if you think outside of mats and curtains. This little headdress will suit fine on a wedding. It requires 90 bobbins with “surfine” silk and “perlé” du Ver à Soie threads.

Mat in shades of Orange

Tonder. Bolillos Arzhela

This mat has been crafted using Tonder lace, although with some modifications. Instead of using closed stitch I’m using half stitch which I like more and looks more stylish and pretty.

This work has been crafted using “surfine” and “perlé” du Ver à Soie silks, using a total of 68 bobbins.

This is one of my designs that uses Tonder lace modified to my liking with half stitch. It requires 93 bobbins of “surfine” silk and “perlé” du Ver à Soie threads .

Bobbin lace jewels

Arzhela Bolillos en el norte de Madrid

Here are some jewels I have designed. These are simple to do pieces with cotton, rayón and Madeira (metalized) threads. In some of them it is necessary to include a metal thread so they can have enough consistency.

Either for adults or kids, few bobbins and simple patterns.
