Everlasting crystal body piece by ambur-rose is a beautifully designed and carefully strung piece of beaded body jewellery. There is an elf-like elegance to the piece and this was reflected in how it was presented, too. It's so very magical!

Everlasting crystal body piece

By ambur-rose

When first setting out on this project, the thought concept was 
to create an ‘overlay lace' that could be worn over anything.

Something similar to a net, but not with that net appearance.
And even though that look is there, something more happened while creating. It felt like two worlds came together to form a perfect union.

Every moment I worked on this it felt as if stars reached to cascade softly to a seas embrace.

Of course it has that nouveau fantasy flair; a hint of victorian, a smidgen of egyptian. -- and the angles and curves even dabble a shade of deco.

No pattern, no drawing – all freehand and fueled on love, and goodness, photo’s just can’t do this piece justice.<3

So Here are the schematics: 
~144 feet of chain
~Various cut shaped and placed modern and vintage findings 
~420 inches of double crystal findings that compile hand created trim (with an added 400+ variegated through chain and encased design) 
~Dozens of Swarovski crystal drops. 
~Weight is a little over 5 lbs, but don’t let that fool you, It gracefully drapes the body and is perfectly balanced

This is three months of work -- but well worth it <3

Wow, just wow. :wow:
I love the concept, and the design you've created is even more stunning with a character and style all of its own.

I bet you could barely move while wearing this - for all the people wanting to stop you and admire it!

OMGoodness Squanpie, thank you so much! I just love the concept of making something that can be worn over anything!! I absolutly love formal wear bridal and fantasy gowns and the like but the idea of just being able to wear just that gown once because of the incredible applique work is a frustration for so many that love the craftsmanship of that work frustrated me -- the idea was to make something you could wear with whatever you deemed, and it would change the look and feel without you having to worry about a new clothes!

That's such a cool thought. I get that too - all the people who keep their wedding dresses in the closet for the rest of their life, when they must know they're never going to wear them again. So nice to have something that can be made special for an occasion like that, but still have life afterwards too. :)
