Elizabeth Woodville replica necklace (as depicted in the Portrait as Queen of England c. 1472. Queens' College, Cambridge.) This is the 2 pieces set which includes the shorter crystal necklace and the longer square piece with carnelian gemstone.
Elizabeth Woodville was Queen consort of England as the spouse of King Edward IV from 1464 until his death in 1483. She was also known as 'The White Queen' and was a key figure in the War of The Roses. She was mother to Elizabeth of York, the first Tudor queen.
I have used glass crystal navettes in clear and red with a central black crystal square and chevron style chain work in rose gold to recreate my version of this historical piece.
The necklace measures approximately 18 inches with an extender chain and lobster clasp.
The pendant itself measures 50 x 50 mm.
Longer bodice piece: Made with a waxed fabric black cord, large gold plated square pendant and a 30 mm central carnelian gemstone. There are three baroque style faux pearls with filigree bead caps.
