Mirror work on crochet

During one of my experiments I ended up using mirror work to make it flashy. I tried it on some flower applique and I seem to like them. Do you?

The flowers are simple 5 petal flowers with an edging to highlight it. The centre of the flowers are used for placing the mirrors and stitching all around it.

This type of mirror work is called Shisha embroidery.

It is an art that is spread throughout Asia and I wanted to introduce it into crochet. It can be used for such appliques or clothing.
