Last year a friend asked me to create a necklace for her that had a few certain colors and reminded her of the movie "Marie Antoinette" with Kirsten Dunst... So I watched the movie and listened to the soundtrack several times and this is what I came up with!


She wanted the back to tie with a ribbon...

The black neck portion was done with freeform peyote stitch and crystals and vintage pieces.

Here is what it looks like being worn!

I'm happy to say she really loves it! The cameo was a vintage piece I picked up and beaded. There is a piece of pink suede on the back of it. I made the black neck piece first and then added on the netting. It actually is not that heavy of a piece! This is the last thing I completed last year... I am now on to bigger pieces to enter in our fair this summer!

Thanks! She really helped stir my creative juices with this one! There wasn't much direction from her... just going with it was almost too hard!

You are a good friend! I think it would be hard to ever give this away Smiley. It's incredibly detailed and must have been a ton of work.

Congratulations on being featured in the best of list for 2014!!

It's so intricate! I love this kind of things, and this is absolutely gorgeous!
(Though as an art historian with an interest in historical fashion I must nitpick and say that Marie Antoinette's style was not Victorian but Roccoco. *professional deformation, sorry* But it's still absolutely fabulous and I love it!)
