A New Challenge

The Request:  Sparkly bib necklace

The client wanted one that was sparkly and had a garden them.  Not green but colorful.  Now, it is a common thing to think about Swarovski crystals when you say “sparkly” right?  But I did not want to be ordinary but wanted this project to be extraordinary! 

I could not work with diamonds because the client had a budget as well.  So why not Russian diamonds?

 

Not quite. 

But almost there 🙂
