Amethyst Rose Beaded Dress With Shawl And Necklace
Elaborately hand beaded this gown has unique and interest features. There is contrast in the color combination of clear with Aurora Borealis bead imagery and darker shade of amethyst rose, the straight and slender evening gown has angles at hem lines.
The bead work is a continuous vine stem and flower leaf pattern and covers a large area on both front and back views so adds a luxurious weight to this dress. The neck line is a modest round shape and is sleeveless, it has a two piece look to it with two different angled line finishes, but is all in one long dress with an invisible back zipper closure.
The material I have beaded this image on is a high quality low shine crepe satin, very soft falling in medium weight and thickness, well structured with a full lining, vent slits on both sides of the straight and slender dress fall open to the calves area.
The shawl cover up wrap is a sheer white chiffon with a slight pink tone within it, nice and length at 104 inches long pointed ends by 28 inches wide and is a great color tone match to the beads contrasting in the dress. Perfect for a mother of the bride or groom at a wedding, day time or evening formal party events.
The necklace completes this set with Swarovski vintage 6 mm bicone rose crystals between little clear glass multi color effects beads. A drop hangs from an oxidized silver dainty 1/2 inch center link, the wearing length adjusts from 16 to 18 1/2 inches.
