This textural necklace is made around a vintage porcelain cabochon featuring the famous and mysterious Mona Lisa. I used a large variety of laces and fabrics, velvet, silk tulle...The beautiful portrait is accompanied by a flashy labradorite stone and an array of sequins, rhinestones, metal components with patina and Swarovski crystals.
All hand sewn on a recycled tapestry base, it is an impressive piece but very very lightweight and comfortable. It ties in the back with dark brown mesh ribbon.
Leonardo Da Vinci (1452-1519) was the greatest painter and science man of the Renaissance. Although he didn't have any formal education, he was curious and inventive and he is nowadays celebrated as one of the most talented people who ever lived.
Mona Lisa is the most famous of Leonardo's works and the most famous portrait ever made. She is likely the Italian noblewoman Lisa Gherardini, he wife of Francesco del Giocondo, a silk and cloth merchant.

|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.
