Skill LevelBeginner
TechniqueBead Embroidery
Time1-3 hours
Approximate Size14 1/2 Inches

I think the Swarovski Baroque Mirror is a wonderful complement for velvet ribbon. They are both elegant and opulent. I added bead embroidery around the mirror stone for a little more flair.

A sparkling Swarovski stone and seed bead embroidery are the perfect match in this gorgeous choker. The seed beads allow the crystal focal to stand out even more, while black velvet makes every color pop. Learn how to make this necklace to add some bead embroidery techniques to your repertoire. You can find more inspiration for creating little embroidery pieces that make your style stand out in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
