This set is my best creation for today. I started it from earrings workshop of a very talented designer Guzelle Bakeeva.
Blue Montana oval Swarovski crystals, best quality Japanese beads, tiniest sterling silver beads, Swarovski bicones and filigreeing 925 sterling silver findings. All those perfect materials were so enjoyable to work with and the result turned noble and stylish.
I enjoyed those 3D curves so much that I decided to experiment with size and form of the bezeled crystals, and they grew more and more, and turned to be an amazing sparkling bracelet.
The lace with awesome crystals weaves the arm. Every curve was thought-out to be exactly right form, as well as a laced clasp.
First I wanted to create only a pendant, but Blue Montana pear form Swarovski crystal was so demanding to get into the lace that I couldn't resist. I tried and made various chain patterns and finally got the one I loved - weaved and airy, convex and fit the lace of the center part.

The back part of the crystals sewed with a beautiful pattern, to prevent attrition.
