I created this style two years ago, and it rapidly became a favorite with my customers. I even sold one (a gorgeous piece in black and white that I was hoping to keep for myself) right off my body!
It is about one inch wide (2.5cm), and with its rich and opulent look, you won't believe how light and airy it really is, despite its shiny tide of gems, emprisoned in a delicate crocheted net. Unbelievable comfort with a fabulous look!
