OPULENCE NECKLACE

 

Jayashree Paramesh Class Workshop Opulence Necklace

The over-the-top extravagance of the Palace of Versailles was the inspiration for Opulence Necklace. The magnificent interiors covered in gold leaf moldings, rich silk drapes, bows, ribbons, drops, countless candlelit chandeliers at night, decorated mirrors, and paintings, all exude opulence. Some details, especially the framed mirrors and paintings, from this grand palace made it to the design of Opulence Necklace. Opulence Necklace features a very large cushion-cut rectangle which is bezeled with seed beads and embellished with several layers of pearls, bicones, and other beads. A pretty beaded drop dangles below. This sizable pendant hangs from a beaded rope with several embellished stations. This necklace transports you to an elegantly decorated room from long ago where everything was lit up by candlelight and nestled in soft shadows, where women in soft, velvet gowns twirled around wearing stare-worthy jewelry.
