"Bellissima means beautiful in Italian.
It is the feminine form of the adjective bella meaning beautiful, but when you add -issima to the end of an adjective in Italian, it intensifies the meaning. 

My muse for this project was to make something that was elegant and sophisticated with a large Swarovski stone for visual impact and specific beads for textural effect. The 25x18mm center jewel is made with an open bezel so the color flashes out the sides of the beadwork. Each individual connected arch component is created with odd-count peyote with Pinch-in-the-Ditch and edged with Swarovski crystal beads. The articulated arches flex around your wrist for a comfortable fit."
