The beautiful faceting of the Swarovski mirror stone makes a wonderful showcase in jewelry designs. Cynthia let it shine with bead embroidery accents framing the lovely shape. She strung it on a simple leather necklace for a sophisticated look you'll love. You can find more inspiration for creating little embroidery pieces that make your style stand out in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
