I square stiched the lining, and then added curls of crystals and beads to most of the lining, each bead separately. It's a lot of work, but it is so worth it!
It took me about 15 hours, finishing it with a sterling 925 silver mandrill clasp.
Closeup on the combination of the crystals.I had to concentrate on the pattern I had on my mind so it would come out balanced from every angle.
Notice that the picture I chose for the head of my blog is in fact a closeup of this ornament!
Another cuff in the same pattern,in bridel colors- pearl,white and shiny swarovsky crystals
