Here is a very elegant choker necklace built around a hand painted shell pendant by a Russian artist of Fedoskino. It is a miniature reproduction of Gustav Klimt’s famous painting ” The Kiss”. It is painted with metallic paint and the uncovered shell shows a lot of iridescence when moved in the light. Hard to describe. The focal is surrounded with various components: Swarovski crystals, czech glass leaves, shell beads and some glass components. Above the pendant, I made a black velvet bow sitting behind a filigree antique brass stamping. The choker is made of real great quality leather printed with a metallic snake motif. Accompanying the shell focal is an amazing labradorite stone whose color changes in the light from gray to gold and bluish-green.
The necklace closes with a hook clasp which is very slightly adjustable ( about 1″).
The pendant part of necklace measures 5 7/8″ (15cm) including drops and a maximum 3 1/4″ (85mm) in width. It fits a neck circumference of max 16″(46cm). It weighs 90g.
