I decided to do a project with those gorgeous Swarovski Crystal Elements sew-on beads that I love so much (I did a pillow project using these beads previously). Its funny to think how totally unsparkly I am in my day to day life, but I adore these beads. I thought it would be fun to dress up a plain cardigan with a mixture of crystals. The finished sweater reminds me a little bit of those beaded old lady sweaters I used to wear in college. (Hey, I guess I once was sparkly after all.)
You can buy beads for this project online at Fusion Beads. The Swarovski color mix I used is called Lexi, but there are some really pretty combinations of colors in their mixed collections. I've already made another one of these sweaters for my mom, a black version with the Suede mix, which was made and shipped out of the house so quickly I never took a picture of it. So fun to make these! If anyone out there tries these beaded projects I'd love to hear about it!
Thank you all for the birthday wishes and thoughts on my last post!
