Can't help it, I'm a sucker for period drama. Today I was supposed to do a milloin other things and keep a documentary on Catherine the Great (not the one with Zeta Jones) as background noise. I got inspired instead.

Jekaterina got made out of the miscellania I haven't managed to pack up and make sail over the Atlantic yet. Thus the colours are all wrong for the period and the combination of faceted and unfaceted is slightly strange, although not altogether unpleasing. Sterling silver, white pearls (round and rice) and faceted bricks, unfaceted long teardrops, and a faceted heart all of granate. Had to take the photo in the dark, cause this one is getting packed right now, hopefully to re-emerge in a month or so.
