Here's a big, sparkly brooch made with emerald green and peach crystal stones and beads.
The centre stone is vintage Czech glass (it shows its age in minor ways), while the surrounding stones are old (I'm not sure just how old) Swarovski emerald crystal rhinestones.
I've also used contemporary Swarovski crystal emerald and light peach 4mm and 3mm bicone beads along with the Japanese silver lined crystal seed beads.
They're all intricately woven together and attached to sturdy silver coloured metal filigree pieces, to which I've bonded a pinback.
About 2-3/8" in diameter, and eyecatching without being bold about it, this brooch is undeniably feminine.
It's a case of 'cherchez la femme' here at SPARKLE PLENTY.
