Hopefully, the pearls will stay on. Every other time I’ve attached the pearls, my grandson would come along & take them off again!
I’ve also added gold paint to the sides. I know that there’s not supposed to be gold where there are gems & more pearls, but I thought it would be a good filler. 🙂
Still to be added: gems, braided trim & a bit more paint (both black for the edges & gold).
