Jeweled Miniature portrait renaissance queen encased in glass Reliquary Shrine necklace with religious medals assemblage
Hundreds of tiny hand set glass beads form the lavish dress and hat of this beautiful woman from times long gone. The back ground is also beaded and she has applied feathery hair to give this even more dimension. She hangs inside a long glass vintage shadowbox watch case with a miraculous double sided cross at the bottom and an ornate cross at the top. The vintage brass bead chain has a lovely antique patina to many of the beads giving this the proper age and wear. IT takes many hours to make these and they are all different ( I have others on etsy) . The necklace is 16" long and the drop is 4 1/2" long and is held up by a hand reminiscent of the victorian hand door knocker. A work of art that is one of a kind and so much more beautiful in person.
