This is my first bead embroidered necklace. I made it for a friend for her wedding. Due to the excitement of the event, I forgot to take proper pictures of it at the time. She took it out for me a few weeks ago to get some snapshots for my records.
Unfortunately I didn't have the best lens or lighting available at the time, but I'm happy I have pictures of this piece now.
Materials: Seed beads and Swarovski pearls and crystals. The base material is Lacy's Stiff Stuff.
I drew inspiration from the bodice of her wedding dress, resulting in a design with a lot of floral motifs.
The centerpiece is a beaded flower created using peyote stitch.
