If you have a favorite flatback you want to showcase in a unique way, try gluing it to an embellishment. Cynthia used a filigree embellishment to showcase the dramatic Swarovski skull flatback. The filigree brings an elegant accent to the daring look of the skull. You can see more ideas for using Swarovski components in your jewelry designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
