This beautiful necklace is part of a mini collection of 3 pieces featuring classic portraits of 3 sisters, daughters to king George III: Charlotte, Elizabeth and Augusta. They were painted by Thomas Gainsborough in late 18th century.
This is Elizabeth, the third daughter. I chose a classic colour palette of beige, brown and ornate bronze components. I brought in a splash of colour with the olive green of an unakite stone and a resin rose. She is surrounded by Czech square beads, Swarovski pearls and crystals and various glass beads. It is indeed a very special piece suitable to be worn on occasions or more casually.
Thomas Gainsborough (1727-1788) was a well known English portrait and landscape painter and a founding member of the Royal Academy. He is considered one of the most important British artists of the second half of the 18th century.

|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.
