The Crest Hardware Art Show is a unique non-traditional gallery that exhibits hardware-inspired artwork, featuring over 150 artists from all over the world. I have exhibited in five of these art shows where I recreate famous jewelry designs using only bits of hardware and paint. I design these pieces to the exact specifications of the originals when I can.
This piece is entitled "Duchess". It is an exact recreation of the iconic Cartier bib necklace commissioned by Wallis Simpson, Duchess of Windsor in 1947.
