A necklace I made where I tried to blend classic with modern.  Comments are very much appreciated. Smiley

My comment is...

Ooooooooooooooo!!! Shocked

Seriously, it's gorgeous, and that from someone who doesn't usually like pearls!

I love this, esp the fact that you went a little over the top with it    the word 'opulent' comes to mind   and the color of the cameo is just lovely    wonderful!!!!   Cheesy

You did a wonderful job of blending classic and modern. The cameo and the pearls look like they are glowing.

very nice.  I like pearls of all sorts, including fresh water pearls and glass ones.  I have a beautiful antique cameo pin/pendant that my mother in law gave me.  I wonder if I could make something like this where the cameo is removable.  I had actually forgotten that the piece could also be a pendant since I've only worn it as a pin/brooch.

I am sorta talking myself through this, as I write.  I suppose i could make a necklace with an added jump ring.  My brooch is beigish surrounding by seed pearls.  For this piece, I probably would not include the chain at the bottom.  Oh - the creative juice is flowing and I've got to get back to work for the rest of the day, in a few min, right after lunch.
