The Maiden's Last Dance-Carnet De Bal Assemblage Necklace

Here's a beautiful assemblage necklace featuring an Art Nouveau Carnet De Bal. A carnet de bal is French for book of dance.  It depicts a bouquet of chrysanthemums. This carnet de bal still retains its original telescopic pencil.

I took a length of heavy textured antique silver tone chain and combined it with sterling silver wire wrapped rock crystal and antique wood rosary beads. To close the piece, I've added an Art Deco rhinestone pot metal brooch and Victorian gutta percha t-bar.  Check it out!
