Here is a sweet necklace built around a hand painted shell pendant by a Russian artist of Fedoskino. It is a miniature reproduction of Gustav Klimt’s painting ” Mother and child”. The black lip shell shows a lot of iridescence when moved in the light. Beautiful and hard to describe. The focal is surrounded with an array of flowers continuing the little flowers painted around the mother. Swarovski crystals, czech glass leaves, shell beads and antique brass metal components come together to create a beautiful ornate piece.
The necklace closes with a hook clasp which is very slightly adjustable ( about 1″).┬áThe pendant part of necklace measures 7″ (16.8cm) including drop and a maximum 3 1/4″ (85mm) in width. It weighs 102g.
