Help! I am looking to have a bridal sash made, and I am not sure of my resources. Basically, I found a Watters belt that is GREAT, but I need a different colour ribbon. I am looking for an aqua blue or maybe a lighter robins egg blue ribbon with pearl beading. I am having trouble finding someone who can do beading well, to where it doesnt look cheap or like an applique.
I’ve been scouraging the Etsy fourms looking for a seller I can contact to help me create this, but I have yet to find anyone with beading skills. I really do NOT want any flowers on my sash.
Does anyone know of someone who could help create this, or have a website suggestion of a tiffany blue/ light aqua blue sash?

What’s your budget? The cheapest one I’m finding for this level of quality and look is $285

I used Sarah Morgan Bridal on Etsy. Her beading was gorgeous, and I believe she does custom work.

You can go to your local higher end fabric store. They sell beaded, pearl and rhinestone appliques in many different shapes and sizes. As the beading is already done, you( or your seqmsteress)just have to attach it to the ribbon. You can also buy these online.
If you can’t find the color ribbon you need locally, you can order it online.

@michiru4ever: I haven’t determined a budget. Do you have a link to the sash you are refering to?

This Etsy seller seems to have the quality of beadwork you like. The belt isn’t a replica of the Watters. But I’m sure you could send them a photo and they could re-create it. Or maybe you could see if the dress shop can order the Watters belt with a different color ribbon.
