Individual Options ... Done and Dusted

Yesterday was the last hand in of second year... eek ! It really sunk in yesterday that I've only got one year left of my degree, how scary ! But I got everything finished and handed in yesterday and I've been so pleased with the outcomes of my final dress designs, I ended up going in a really different direction and embellished with very chunky, heavy metal beads and washers, check out some of the pictures below !

I'm at the stage of embellishing my finals and these are a few things I've gathered but am still on the search for the right embellishments. I've gone for quite earth ground colours and am searching for a bead/sequin/embellishment - that a gorgeous teally/duck egg blue colour to make the rest of the embellishments come alive! I'll know it when i see it. This is so different to anything I've done before embroidery/embellishment wise and I'm enjoying every minute!
