This is a gorgeous necklace featuring a hand painted reproduction on shell of one of my favourite and less known artworks by Gustav Klimt. Two lovers embrace in a fairytale atmosphere. There is a lot of emotion in this pieces. I love the contrast between the male and female, the glow surrounding the woman. I used two blue flashing moonstones and iridescent etched Czech beads to bring the light in. I continued the forest atmosphere beyond the painting with antiqued verdigris patina leaves and a moss agate with fern like inclusions. There is also a tiny resin rose, lace, sequins, a Swarovski crystal heart hanging at the bottom and an antique bronze stamping of Victorian rose. The photos do not do justice to this piece. The shell flashing in the light, the gemstones, the wonderful texture of the whole piece!
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.
