Chinese cloisonne opera mask freshwater pearl turquoise necklace
Without the mask, this would be a sweet, demure pearl necklace.
With the addition of the Chinese cloisonne opera mark, however, you have a conversation piece. A unique statement piece that isn't necessarily huge.
Chinese opera masks are used to portray a character's role and emotions. These cloisonne masks depict a stylized generalization rather than a specific character.
The mask is combined with 5mm off-white freshwater baroque pearls, and 12mm (1/2") flat coin pearls. I also included Chinese turquoise rondelles and 4mm lapis lazuli. Toggle clasp and spacers are sterling silver.
The entire center drop is 3-1/8" (8cm) long. The necklace shown is 18" (45cm), but I can make it slightly shorter or longer to fit you.
I liked the pop of red in this mask, but you can request one with blue and turquoise if you'd like a more uniform color scheme.

The earrings are even prettier in person than on the web. I've gotten lots of compliments about them.
