Yeah, one month done, eleven more to go. I'm itching to try out so many ideas. Today I head to Tucson for the Gem and Mineral shows, where I'll be demonstrating and offering my wares at the SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS event. Natually, today's creation has to involve crystals. The sparkling center cluster made using pointed-back chaton crystals is ringed by millefiori patterned petals that gently curve over a holographic foil surface. A striped border finishes off the rim.
