Actually, I finished this last Friday night to wear to Cirque Du Soliel on Saturday.
I wore it with a grape colored silk sheath dress and kept the rest of the jewelry fairly simple; a few gold bangles with gold, amethyst, & moldavite stud earrings.
This is one of the projects from "The Beader's Color Palette", by Margie Deeb.
Margie's Troy collar, done with topaz AZ Czech glass and pale gold metallic fire polish, is based on a gilt silver collar dating from about 2300 B.C.E. that was discovered in Troy.
I wonder who wore it. And where & why? Was it a gift?
Crazy me, I'm thinking of making another one, this time using Swarovski crystals in place of the fire polish. Since purples, violets, & pinks are my top-of-the-list favorites those are the colors I'm thinking of using.
I also need to find a box or something that is big enough to store this. I can't casually toss this in the jewelry armoire.
