The paint job is wonderful--love the layers, giving the piece depth!  Did you use the jewelry as it or is it painted as well?  What is the diamond looking starburst pieces in the upper left and lower right?  Gorgeous!

The two starburst pieces are a pair of blingy stretch bracelets, flattened out. Nope, didn't paint any of the jewelry. Used a ton of beads! And the background was easy peasy. Painted the whole thing black, then gave it a quick mist of silver to mottle it. Thanks!
