French Empire Style Coral Necklace

Recently a costumer contacted me with a really interesting jewelry commission. She was wondering if it would be possible for me to reproduce a necklace that Isabella Rossellini wears in the miniseries Napoleon (2002). She provided me with a screenshot, and I got to work figuring out how to construct the necklace given the materials I could source.

I am very happy with the result! I was able to make the focal coral components by attaching beads strung onto headpins to metal cabochon settings using epoxy clay. Then I covered the clay with a coral colored glass cabochon. It was neat figuring out how to make my own custom components.
