Spy Glass is inspired by a teleidoscope Nancy had as a child.* By using the facets of two Swarovski 30mm Chessboard flat back unfoiled stones you can look at your world perfectly refracted.
Decorative and structural peyote beading between the two stones gives a depth and character whilst serving as the bezel on its edges. Swarovski crystals accent the rope of Chenille stitch.
* A teleidoscope is a kind of kaleidoscope with a lens and an unobstructed view so it can be used to form kaleidoscopic patterns from objects outside the instrument rather than items installed as part of it.
LEVEL: INTERMEDIATE (no experience with Chenille is required)
