The chain is wonderful: with rose gold-colored flowers over stylized leaves and stems, alternating with circular discs. Great condition...

These are designed with a top cut steel cluster, attached to a faceted steel bale, which connects to a very detailed, beautiful flower. The central flower is surrounded by a circle of cut steel, which not only frames it, but adds an illusion of movement. Each faceted piece of steel is connected to a metal backplate with a rivet. This is very time consuming work done entirely by hand...
