Subtle and understated, the beads are medium micro beads, sewn in a looped motif, using a mixture of faceted and simple round beads. The faceted beads glitter slightly, highlighting the panels of the design.
Frame is gold coloured metal, with enamelled baby blue and pink forget-me-not flowers and white leaves, gold beads intertwine round the flowers. The motif is copied onto the clasp.
