Fun textures come together in this fabulous necklace. Cynthia layered leather Lillypilly Designs embellishments with a Swarovski flatback and then added bead embroidery around the edges. Seed beads from an Artbeads Designer Seed Bead Blend provide the perfect complement of shining colors. She used the same seed beads in one of the necklace strands and then layered it with a simple Leather Cord USA strand. The result is a fanciful floral necklace you'll love!
