Ooooo! Tres, tres elegante!(English fails me!) It reminds me of the lovely Victorian mourning jewelry; it's Gothic without being "goth." I loathe that "goth/emo" look that the kids are inti these days; it's ugly, stupid and pointless. But the the Gothic style itself, I adore! Look at all the beautiful architecture that came from that period: Notre Dame, Amiens, St. Mary the Virgin in Bury, England......the soaring arches, the incredible flying buttresses, the clever little gargoyles; the eventual dissolutuion of walls in favor of windows to bring in the natural light......it all speaks of great majesty but also geat serenity to me.
The Victorian mourning jewelry was a nod to the Gothic era, so that's probably why I like it so much. Well done, Niwas!
Yay Niwas, that bracelet makes me cheer, its fantastic, i usually don't work much with black, that teaches me again how great it can look. The seahell flower pattern is....no words for it.... want it want it want it :))).
Its so beautiful you should give it a place of honor in your collection.
Val your words about gothic and architectur are getting me in mood to do something in that style, well got to wait, ....but if i need one time inspiration ill ask you for another chatter about a needed subject :oD.
