The focal is surrounded with a variety of components: a natural untreated chrysocolla, stone of communication, expression, empowerment and teaching. I also used a handmade cold porcelain poppy flower (artist from France), handmade lampwork glass flowers (artist from Florida), Czech glass beads, Japanese tila beads and verdigris patina metal drop.
It is truly a bright and unique piece that you can wear on many occasions from dinner on the terrace to a fancy party.
Alphonse Maria Mucha (1860-1939) was a Czech painter, illustrator and graphic artist, living in Paris during the Art Nouveau period. He is known for decorative theatrical posters, llustrations, advertisements and decorative panels. His career took off in 1984 when he began to work for French stage actress Sarah Bernhardt.

|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.
