Inspired by the ancient splendor of a civilization both sacred and secular, this necklace reminds me of the thriving commerce of the markets of the crossroads between east and west, with its religious icons and gold coins. Like fragments of an ancient Byzantine mosaic, 420 cts rough aquamarine beads are framed in gleaming 22k gold. Rich texture, rough forms and refined materials combine in a unique work of art for your neck. 50 cm long.
