This isn’t a proper introduction for my new Hatshepsut Locket, but I can’t resist sharing some amateur pictures of my latest piece. This version is in sterling silver, hanging on a black satin cord.
Here’s how the necklace looks against my amazing bosom.
To open the locket, you first open the safety clasp and unscrew the top, like so.
I’m not going to show you the gold and diamond version till the professional photos are taken.
Hatshepsut was an Egyptian queen who, after her husband (who was also her half-brother) died, proclaimed herself Pharaoh. I think she would have gotten along great with Empress Wu, the self-proclaimed female emperor of China, if only they hadn’t been separated by two millennia.
If you’re interested in owning this piece, email me at wbjewelry at hotmail dot com, because it’s not going on my site until I do the good photos.
