This gorgeous burgundy necklace was inspired by Venetian masks and the famous carnival of Venice. The beautiful ceramic face by artist Diane Briegleb is covered with lace in matching colours with the rest of the piece. The focal is surrounded with hand painted shibori silk and a red patina metal component. The burgundy Swarovski pearls dotted everywhere and antique brass metallic accents contribute to the opulent feel of this piece. I also used a natural pyrite cabochon and a deep red agate slice.

The front part measures 8 1/4″ (210mm) (including the drop) and a maximum 4″ (101mm) in width. It ties in the back with adjustable black velvet ribbon. It weighs 127g.
