This necklace was designed as part of the exhibit in the 3rd Asalah Fashion Competition, held in Oman in October 2009. The pendant is inspired by a historic piece that dates back to the Byzantine Empire. The original tassel held tiny paisley filigrees. Here the choice of the large faceted crystals dictates the choice of the colors that terminate the tassel and run the length of the chain, to intersperse color throughout the piece. This pendant features a lighter and more modern variation of the Byzantine group of semi-precious stones that was introduced in 2008. (See matching earrings)
