Vampsart.com Gift Beading Cool

I am in love with Swarovski stones. How can I not be? They add such vibrancy to what would normally be such low keyed beads. Four fossils - orthoceras - provided by my Mom & Dad, are the focus, as well as one large Swarovski stone with bicones. Vitrail medium rivoli's are combined into the brick-stitch technique, with sterling silver beads. The fossils are backed with black ultra suede and the straps are done with bugle beads in a herringbone pattern. There's about 60 hours put into this piece.
