Pearls and Crystals

The real beauty of the custom made gown, is the details (well, after the unique, perfect custom fit... it is definately the details) Here is a really close up photo of the beginnings of the lace details. I have sewn on mini pearls inside the outline of the lace flower, and the center holds larger pearls and swarovski crystals.Clearly this is a long process of sewing, where each bead is stitched into place by hand. I really like this part, and just follow my instincts as to how much and where the beads are placed. The overall effect will be textural and a bit shiny, and from a distance you won't see the beads too much (white on white), but it adds a richness that is very wedding worthy.... :)
