Cleo's Back

About this design:

Working on this necklace really had no idea how it would turn out. The finish product kind of reminds me of something from Egyptian time thus the name Cleo


The blue square mother of pearl shell beads are strung holding simple brown glass beads with a large ceramic focal bead adorned with the painted jasper gemstones

    I’m sure Cleopatra would love it especially since you named it after her. I just happen to love it, too.
    Earth tones are my favorite. :D

    I think those square mother of pearl beads look like something from Nefertiti’s ‘famous’ necklace. It’s beautiful.
