For the exhibit Fit For a Queen, I created a jewelry piece for Queen Cleopatra.
The Lotus necklace is made from 303 pearls and precious stones, combining to create three Lotus flowers.
The piece is shaped in Sterling Silver, using 19 different kinds of cultural pearls and precious stones, in various size combinations. I had been dreaming of making this piece of jewellery since a vacation in Egypt back in 2001, where I got obsessed with the wonders of all the treasures I experienced. The Lotus flower was omni present in the architecture, and the rich wall and grave decorations in the graves of Valley of the Kings.
