I wore a dress I'd worn many times before, but I did make a brand new necklace!
This double-strand collet necklace is based off of this wonderful portrait I recent came across:
|Duchess Sophia Frederica of Mecklenburg-Schwerin by Georg Matthieu, c. 1774|
I was utterly charmed by this portrait, and especially her unusual two strand collet necklace. I had to have one for myself. I whipped it together right before the ball, but I'm pleased with how it turned out!
My AMAZING hair was done for me by the lovely Jenny la Fleur! She was kind enough to be my hairdresser AND my roommate, and she was superlative at both tasks!
