There are 3 sizes of small pearls in two different shades, two are a silvery dark grey/black color and the third is a medium black. Black jet beads make up the make the stems and the center of the largest flowers. These beads are the darkest black on this material. The embroidered area measures 35” x 9.25” (88.9 cm x 23.5 cm).
