Three Muses. Hats and Crowns and Wings and Things

Here is my entry for the Three Muses weekly challenge, where the challenge this week is "hats and crowns and wings and things".  I don't use those motifs much in my paper and fiber art, but for some weeks now I have been looking at these gorgeous 1940's brass crown stampings sitting on my work table and intending to come up with a jewelry design featuring them. This challenge was just the ticket!

I think of this necklace as "The Queen's Jewels" and it features several vintage components from the 1940's to 1950's: the crown, the rhinestone bead balls, the crystal beads and the glass pearls. With a royal swan dangling off the extension chain, hopefully this is fit for a queen :)

Added Apr 28: Available now at Bumbershoot Designs under the name "Royal", you will find this necklace here.
