Burmese Princess Museum Piece #3

About this design:

My favorite of the pieces I submitted to the museum. I worked hours and hours on getting this one to hang just right, no matter the size of neck of the prospective buyer. I am really happy with the results, though I feel I need to invest in a real-size bust. It lays really nicely on a real neck but lacks a little in the photos. Like the amethyst piece, I'm very happy I have some more ruby in zoisite to make something for myself! I guess it's good when you don't really want to get rid of your pieces, those are always the first to sell (in my experience). I decided to stick with surgical steel earwires instead of sterling silver to make sure it wouldn't hinder anyone from buying the set due to allergies (*fingers crossed*)
