String of pearls

Another labour of NYC Pink love! This was supposed to be a very simple neckpiece with small wax elements - but somehow I got carried away with the baroque lushness of it all...

For some reason this neckpiece reminds me of my Grandma, although she hated pink! I think it has something to do with the time and meticulous work involved in making it - she was a milliner and always sewing. When Christmas starts to loom on the horizon I always think of the day we used to spend making Chrismas table decorations together each year, something I always looked forward to.
