To say my interest in jewelry from antiquity has lessened would be woefully incorrect. After recreating the pearl earrings I moved onto necklaces and Roman clothing. 

My Roman necklace collection:

Stones used:
amethyst, rock crystal, carnelian, beryl, & lapis lazuli


freshwater pearls

I will be posting photos of the originals if I can find free use versions. Until then, I keep a board on Pinterest you are welcome to peruse.
