The Effect

Opulent, but not necessarily ornate.  Well, that's what I think, anyway.  I finished the moonstone necklace a few minutes ago; it's choker length with lots of silver and pearls.  It's in the art nouveau style with a bow towards renaissance jewelry and it's pure decadence.  

The centerpiece is a large moonstone cabochon with swirls and balls of silver surrounding it; the main portion of the necklace is Japanese two-in-one maille with large pearls inside of even larger silver rings.  Three sections of smaller pearls alternating with little square silver beads swoop around and below the moonstone, enclosing a dangling large pearl and a tiny crystal.

I'm sitting up straighter just now because I'm wearing it.
