Magi #1 gets some BLING!

Many needlework projects call for individual beads or charms. But how often do you really get to jazz up a project with a glitzy chain of Swarovski crystals?

Check out the bling on Magi #1!Bling2_31Jul2011This length of chain is very similar to the one found here, except the crystals used here are only about 2mm across. They are attached by simply couching between the crystals.

There are actually two strand of crystals on Magi #1 in Dorothy Lesher’s The Magi.  Here he is in all of his glory. Can you find the other crystals?

This is the reason I love taking classes. You never know what new technique you'll learn that you can use for any number of future projects.

I am stitching the Magi, too, and I am also on Magi #1. I love your idea for the crystals. Is this a strand, like the one in your link to Dreamtime Creations? It doesn't look like Swarovski beads or glue-on crystals, and I am curious how you did it. Fantastic!
