A versatile necklace on black featuring a painted focal by a very talented Russian artist. The shell is iridescent and it shimmers in the light. The photos do not do it justice. I picked up the vines in the painting by using a gray jasper stone with black veins. On either side lie an array of Czech glass beads and copper sequins. Underneath there is a golden labradorite gem which also shimmers in the light. Pretty black metal birds are hanging on each side. A necklace that you could wear dressed up or more casually. It is quite light for the size.
Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) was a Mexican artist known for her self-portraits and folklore artworks. She loved her native Mexico and adored her husband, the artist Diego Rivera. She suffered great trauma in her life and she started painting while being confined to bed for a big part of her life. Her pain and love are visible in most of her works.

|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.
