I like this design for a couple of reasons. First, the combination of the white frosted modern mannequin sitting on very soft chiffon material, and second the placement of the necklace itself.
I placed it asymmetrically on the bust and it works, I think, precisely because it offers both a sophisticated and a casual look.
I felt that the size of the stones needed something to balance the piece while not overpowering it.
Because the bust has placement for one earring, I think it adds to the overall look.
Asymmetry Catches the Eye
The combination of asymmetry and contrast make this display – even in the photo – a real eye catcher.
The asymmetry makes you feel like this is something unique and special.
I like the one-earring aspect of it, and the way the fuchsia chalcedony and gold metal are so strikingly colorful against the white backdrop.
Also, the display itself lends the whole scene a very upscale elegance, while the jewelry captures your attention!
A very lovely setup – thank you so much for sharing it.
I think you may have been a window dresser in a past life, Pauline! You have a real artistry for staging jewelry.
