Elda de la Rosa: part 1


Earlier this year, Chicago designer Elda de la Rosa used some of my jewelry in a photo shoot.  
Doesn't the necklace look fabulous with the dress?

Here's a closeup of the necklace.  
It makes me think of Liz Taylor as Cleopatra (only she probably would have worn this on her head).  
The focal piece is a re-purposed 1970's Swarovski crystal and faux turquoise brooch, 
centered on three vintage gold-tone chains. 
The back of the brooch is marked "Austria"
