What are you most proud of? That I completed such a difficult project even though other people did not understand my motivation or theme of this piece This piece is literally covered with Swarovski crystals from top to bottom, it could be flatbacks, or crystal beads or what they call elements. I have a small fortune invested in this piece and I am entering it into my first competition. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Bounce lots of ideas off your friends and don;t be afraid to think outside of the "bolt"...of fabric...that is.
