The glass photo cabochon is a portrait by a Venetian female artist. I just love the tonal range in this image. I picked up the colours and created layers of texture with sequins, lace, soutache cord, rhinestone chain. Below the image sits a gorgeous glazed ceramic component (from Spain) and a dangle of a dragonfly with a Swarovski drop. I think the peach rose brings just the right amount of femininity to this piece. The front collar is hand painted and distressed Italian leather in the same colour range.
Rosalba Carriera was a 17th to 18th century Venetian Rococo painter. In spite of her being a woman in a time period where most successful artists were men, she managed to build a career in portrait miniatures. She is still remembered as one of the most successful female artists in art history.

|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.
