I was quite excited when I found this antique religious pin in a Florence antique shop. The image depicts the madonna and child. I mounted it on a vintage mother of pearl buckle and selected beads that would coordinate with the soft colors in the image. Stones include freshwater pearls, crystals, turquoise, amazonite, rose quartz, ceramic beads, and rhinestone rondelles.
Necklace is 20.5" long. Pendant is 2.5" long.
