Over the weekend, I went to a Gem Faire with a beading-nerd friend. He was running all over the place. His head was jerking left and right. I, on the other hand, felt the need to wear sunglasses because all the beads were so epileptic. We stayed there for about two hours. I got this copper leaf and a few strands of beads.
I spent my evening refocusing my eyes and battling twisted wire, an aching back, and fingers that are too big. With my friend's technical help, my first necklaces was finally born. <3
This cocktail dress was made within 12 hours including buying the materials. It was a challenge, but very fun.
Concept: orange, use my lace fabric and 18" by 16" shimmery spandex
Goal: Wear it in my friend's going away and graduation party that night.
I played and organized various value and textured orange fabrics together into this fun, cocktail dress. With a beautiful chicken feather scarf, a cream color fish net tight, and a flower hat. This whole outfit turned out surprisingly fun & colorful yet elegant. It fitted my personality quite well.
