What a beauty. It glitters and glows. What a statement this would make. The directions are very straight forward and easy to follow. It won't take much time of money to make this. I can see it on a black dress. Talk about making an entrance. This is next on my to do list.

I made this necklace and it is so gorgeous! It took a bit of patience to put it together, but it can definitely be done in one evening. I get so many compliments on it, and no one believes I made it myself!
