Victoria could not imagine anyone even thinking about her legs, so she wore the garter on her arm on the same shoulder as the sash.
Alice Chaucer was granted the honour of being made a Lady of the Garter, and her tomb was used centuries later by Queen Victoria to learn how a lady should wear the Garter insignia including the arm garter when Victoria was to wear the Garter herself at her coronation.
Her effigy was examined by Queen Victoria's commissioners in order to discover how a lady should wear the Order of the Garter, which she wears on her left wrist.
Me wearing the garter…
Supposedly Queen Victoria’s Order Of The Garter arm band I found on Pinterest and based it closely on it.
I used rhinestones for jewellery making, a soldering iron, solder and metal filigree to make the elaborate lettering and other additional details. To make the velvet base I used a belt cut down and dark blue velvet material.
To not make this post so long I’ve started taking pictures once I made the base which was pretty simple to make. I then started crafting the boarder gems which were two stones soldered together and I added a little point at the top.
I then covered almost the whole band with gemstones:
I then used filigree to cut out a flower shape. I used individual gemstones and soldered them onto the filigree.
