This cross reminds me of a piece of jewelry Cleopatra might wear. Can't you just see Claudette Colbert with this around her beautiful neck? I think it has to do with the shape of the vintage rhinestone shoe clip I used. I added nuggets of turquoise, those that weren't perfect, but with uneven beauty. The Czech crystal beads are also vintage, with the most interesting and irregular shape. They were bought from a vendor at the last Gem & Jewelry Show. Also added, were wrapped Swarovski crystal rondells and several flat sterling silver beads with great texture.
This will make someone I know very happy.
