I think this would also be really cool as a hair piece.
Out of curiosity, what did you use to antique it?

I love the coloring on this! That rose/pink/shimmer (not so good at describing) is gorgeous! Is it super heavy?

I mixed acrylic paint (browns and gold) and used a paint brush / my fingers to get it into the cracks, and then an almost dry papertowel to sponge off.  Once it was dry, used Varathane as a sealer.

As far as weight, its not terribly heavy, less than a pound.  I don't have a small scale to get an exact weight on it.  I can wear it for most of the day without feeling a strain on my neck or skin, but after about 6 hours, I do need to take it off or let it rest on my chestal region  Wink instead of dangling from my neck.

This is gorgeous. I would totally buy and wear something like this. I'm glad you antiqued it because it makes it so elegant.
