Dazzle Me

We’re sure you’ve heard of the saying “All that glitters is not gold”. But in this particular theme of Crafts Envy, we’d like to dispute this claim because in the world of fiber art, all that is gold really does glitter! We went in search of works that might dazzle you and found 5 designs that are just as precious as they are sparkly. Embroideries laced with gold lamé and gleaming sequins (and imbued with precision and hard work!), they truly are a sight to behold.
