I used Swarovski crystals and blue pearls with the silk flower.
A Close-up of the flower construction-
I wired it all together with a loop on the back to secure it to the necklace.
I have TERRIBLE luck trying to photograph clear crystals. No matter what I do the sparkling clarity of Swarovski crystals totally throw my camera for a loop. I love my camera and it normally does a great job, but not with black beads or clear Swarovski crystals. Very frustrating.
