Never let it be said that I am not all about the gaud. My sister bought this delicate and elegant cloisonne fan necklace; but alas, she found she never wore it.
So she asked me to make something with it, and I went to town with this large and dramatic lapis lazuli and cloisonne multi-strand necklace, featuring a yellow and blue floral vessel.
Lapis, cloisonne, goldleaf lampwork; accented with frit and powder floral. Photographed 19dec02, so I'm sorry to say there are some very bad specular highlights.
The basic concept isn't so bad...but I suspect she still doesn't wear it. Like the CatFish it is very large, dramatic piece, and more than the typical American will wear (alas for me...)
In which case, I ’spose I ought to get it back, and restring it again...
