This stunning show stopper is created around a beautiful hand painted portrait of a girl. It is a reproduction of Francois Boucher's painting of his daughter. This piece is even more special as there can never be another as the Fedoskino artist who painted it is retired. The quality is exquisite! Under the image there is a blue stained agate stone accompanied by handmade cold porcelain roses, lace and antique bronze metallic components. On top there is light pink stone (I do not remember what kind it is, probably jade) surrounded by even more ornate brass stampings. The collar is genuine embossed Italian leather. The fringes are Swarovski pearls and crystals. It hangs on a row of fire polished faceted Czech glass beads with antique bronze hardware.
François Boucher was a French painter, draughtsman and etcher, who worked in the Rococo style. Boucher is known for his idyllic and voluptuous paintings on classical themes, decorative allegories, and pastoral scenes. He was perhaps the most celebrated painter and decorative artist 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.
