Here is one of my original designs that I created for Easter and weddings, but would be a beautiful stole for any special event. The background is a really high quality dupioni silk, and is heavily beaded with glass seed beads, pearl beads, crystals and tonal beads, sewn with silver thread.... It took a significant amount of time to execute, but it is one of my favorite designs because of it's subtle sparkle and reflection. The upper portion has only a few crystals intertwined with the pearls and glass, so not to distract from the message, but it is nothing if not elegant. The photo does not do it justice.
