Now this is what you call "statement jewelry"

Years ago I saw the movie "La belle et la bête" (Beauty and the Beast, 1946, directed by Jean Cocteau). Belle (Josette Day) wears the most beautiful, asymmetrical pearl brooch/necklace combo. Even in the black and white film the jewels were sparkly and gorgeous. I tried to make something similar year ago but didn't succeed. Beside the necklace itself, the garment under it is a challenge as it would need to be pretty sturdy to hold the weight.
I recently went looking for the image and thought you bead-lovin' people might like to check it out...


  1. Stunning, Becca... with costumes like that Ms. Day would hardly need to ACT!

  2. How fabulous. I've always wanted to make something based on the Casablanca wardrobe, but this really is absolutely stunning.

  3. Wow. That is a stunner! I think it would be fun to try doing something like that. Wouldn't that look great on a big woolly cape for the winter? What a beautiful picture. Thanks for sharing! Enjoy the day. Erin

  4. It's gorgeous Rebecca. And it does set your mind racing with design ideas. The statement would not HAVE to be Look at my cleavage but that might be part of it?
