"Gold to an Airy Thinness Beat" Necklace

The "old masters were never wrong about"
beauty and craftsmanship.
Greek 18th century 22k gold filigree elements
to be restored and adorn a new pearl necklace.

The ornate 22k gold filigree elements were
carefully cleaned and gently buffed, their connecting links examined
and restored, where necessary, and then hand knotted on pre-stretched
silk with cultured golden natural pearls in between.
