The Affair of the Necklace



Ah...Marie Antoinette is infamous for a role she never played, that of purchasing an extravagant and outrageously expensive diamond necklace. Well, last I visited the Petit Trianon, I happened upon this amazing bauble...I wonder now...did she REALLY refuse those diamonds?

Tiered Necklace created from mostly vintage jewelry items and some new beads and ribbon.

... and the Affair of the Necklace is one of my favorite stories!
