This romantic bridal necklace is made around a painted lacquer reproduction of Dominique Ingres portrait of Mademoiselle Rivière. I created a soft pastel colour scheme with peaches and cream. I used the best quality materials: Swarovski pearls, a white solar quartz slice ( which is a slice of stalactites hanging from the ceiling in caves), a labradorite gem and a white patina rose stamping.

Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (29 August 1780 – 14 January 1867) was a French Neoclassical painter. He was a precursor of modern art influencing many later modernists like Picasso. At the beginning of his career the critics found his style bizarre, but eventually he was recognized as the leader of Neoclassical school in France.

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.
