    N, simple and simply GORGEOUS!! It makes me think of Deco, or Egyptian Revival, very very very cool!

    A truly elegant piece. It doesn’t get any better than lapis and silver.

    I like the way you brightened up the lapis with the silver and blue crystals. I too thought Egyptian right away when I saw the piece. But then I just read an article on Bead Inspirations blog yesterday about the Egyptian exhibit in California.

    Yes, I would classify this as an egyptian style collar with a French twist (the fleur-de-lis).
    A very successful element of design is to take one element and repeat it over and over. The key is to know when to stop.
    Beautifully done!
