I made this necklace around a beautiful hand painted reproduction on shell by a very talented Russian artist from Fedoskino. The metallic gold and silver colour scheme is continued in the wide variety of crystal beads and multiple metallic shades of Czech glass beads. I also used a triangular white agate and a tiger eye gem. It is a classic piece, very shiny and elegant. It ties with black velvet ribbon.

Gustav Klimt was an Austrian symbolist painter (1862-1918). He is known for paintings of the female body and his "Golden phase" when he included gold leaf in his paintings. He was a secluded person, devoted to his art, spending a lot of time comfortable at home. Unlike many other masters, he was successful and well known in his lifetime.

Care & Maintenance

Do not let perfume or cosmetics come in direct contact with the beads and components. While I choose my material carefully and I try to provide the best quality, if not properly taken care of, all beads will change or lose colour or shine in time if exposed to chemicals.

Handle the fragile components with care especially the clasp area. Be gentle! Because I use lots of fragile components made of clay or porcelain, I advise to keep the jewellery in their own boxes out of harm's way. I do consider repairs, but subject to certain conditions.
