Renaissance Necklace

Artist Statement: This necklace is made up of antique-finished brass components, Swarovski bicones and teardrops in siam and garnet colours, and one 35x45mm cabochon. The central component of the necklace is a large pendant, created by a flat back filigree stamping which was folded around the cabochon. This aluminum cab depicts a beautiful Renaissance lady, in rich red/white colours. The pendant completes its shape by a Swarovski teardrop wrapped in a seperate filigree component hanging below, resembling a flower or lamp oil. The total height of the pendant from the top of the cameo to the bottom of the crystal is 8cms (3inches).
