About this design:

I bought this pretty floor length dress at Walmart. It originally had only 1 strand of cheap looking plastic beads and not much support to hold up the sides so I just had to redesign it! I think it looks much richer now and also a lot safer! ;)


Purple Walmart Dress, Blackstone diamonds, Carved Crystal Quartz, silver base metal spacers
