This design is a tribute to HRH Queen Elizabeth II (April 1926 – September 2022). She spent her whole life in the pursuit of service to her country. Her reign of 70 years and 214 days is the longest of any British monarch and the longest verified reign of any female sovereign in history.
HRH had a deep sense of religious and civic duty. She did not express her own political opinions in public, which was a rarity. She worked tirelessly to bring the world together, whether in joy or in sorrow.
When there was free time, Queen Elizabeth loved to garden, was a stamp collector and a great lover of horse riding and racing. In her earlier years, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh loved Scottish country dancing. Her love and appreciation of music lead her to being a patron of many music-oriented charities. HRH has personally shown recognition to musicians through awards and placement on her Honor’s List. The list is long but here are just a few. From Paul McCarney, Adele, Elton John, and Mick Jagger to Placido Domingo and Julie Andrews.
HRH Queen Elizabeth II loved wearing pearls, so I had to include that in the design. A basic bezel around a central CZ trillion begins an in-depth layering system of pearls, set CZs, netting and peyote stitch. The necklace was created in pearls using right-angle weave, ending in two CZ buttons and a connector for a lovely necklace fit for a Queen!
