This is one of the prettiest beaded sweaters we've met, made of cozy soft lambswool and angora knit in a creamy white color, with shimmering ice blue glass beads sprinkled all over the entire sweater, and featuring pale baby blue embroidered and cut-out accents.
The sparkling over-all beading is thicker around the neckline and both sleeve and bodice hems.
The pastel blue embroidery is beautifully done, and is placed at the hem of each sleeve, all around the neckline, both front and back, with four more on the bodice front (with 2 on each side).
The buttons are pearl finished rounds (with a hole drilled through centers, these are not shank buttons).

These beaded beauties were also referred to as evening sweaters: they could be worn on a chilly evening to keep a girls' shoulders warm while she's wearing fancier, formal attire; or, we like to wear them with jeans and heels to add a bit of sparkle to an otherwise regular night out.
