Oooooh ckrickett !!!! That's gorgeous !!! Great minds are thinking alike this weekend !!! lol My necklace is 53 inches .. I know..I got carried away.. its not even knotted yet. So I'll keep fiddling with it and lose a few... and I think I need a few more odd ones.. and a few less circled pearls... where did you buy your pearls? Mine came from a woman in Sydney and a lot of them are from Jac ... quite a few from a HK seller...really bits and pieces.
As for the drawing ... we need to credit Toulouse Lautrec with that one! It's the cover of a big coffee table book filled with loose sheets of his drawings. I bought it about 30 years ago and have dragged it around the world with me. lol But it was the only sunny window!
they are a lower grade than Douglas now allows into the marketplace.
