Queen of Sheba Necklace
The instant I saw this the title (Queen of Sheba) came to my mind. The amount of intricate handwork to attach all these beads to the rings is incredible. When I asked Rita how long it took her to make this she clicked her tongue and said, “Ooo - many, many hours. I lost count”.
