Beaded Necklace - White Crystal Necklace - One of Picasso's Ladies is Lying on My Neck Necklace

Theme of the Necklace-One of Picasso's Ladies is Lying on My Neck
*******************************************************
The necklace is inspired by both Picasso's portraits of women and Wendy Ramshaw's designs. Being a big fun of both Picasso and Wendy Ramshaw, who is a very famous contemporary jewelry artist, Nazo designed this "piece of art" by using her own techniques and imagination.

"Looking" at a piece of art and "seeing" it are two entirely different things in the same analogy as wearing an ordinary jewelry and "a piece of art". While beading this necklace Nazo did think her needle as the brush of Picasso, and her beads as the paints. As a result, a marriage of Picasso's cubism and Nazo's weaving has been born.

Dressed by light grey, this lady of Picasso is designed to lye on the neck with her "eye" open, "dress" flowing from the sofa like a small fountain, and her "feet" positioned side by side.

Technique of the Necklace
**********************
This original necklace is a unique design of Nazo, weaved by her own technique called Nazo Weaving (you can find out more about this technique, including instructional video and more jewelries made by this technique here: http://www.nazotasarim.com/2009/11/nazo-weaving-technique-nazo-orgu-teknigi.html).
