Cleopatra by sodacrush Cleopatra by sodacrush
"The barge she sat in, like a burnished throne,
Burned on the water; the poop was beaten gold;
Purple the sails, and so perfumed that
The winds were love-sick with them; the oars were silver,
Which to the tune of flutes kept stroke, and made
The water which they beat to follow faster,
As amorous of their strokes. For her own person,
It beggared all description."
- William Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra, 2.2

This lovely pendant was named after the beautiful Cleopatra, and features a glittering Bermuda Blue Swarovski Crystal (crystal shimmers with jewel tones of blue and green). Delicate gold swirls cling to the ocean-coloured jewel, completing the elegant look provided by layers of intricate brass filigree.

Yes it's gorgeous isn't it :D Though bronze colour always combines well with 'intense' colours I find XD Like emerald green, deep velvetish red or violet/dark lavender purple or something like that XD Ahhh such nice combinations :p

Yess, oh :love: I love all those, I have lots of pieces with the blue/purple/red combi, and I love green too but it's a nightmare to photograph :P Don't know why, but unlike the other colours it always turns out much duller and less intense in pictures :(

Oh I can imagine actually, I always have a hard time getting correct pictures of something :p but I guess that's more due to my crappy camera xD Though I guess you have quite a professional one?
But yeah getting the colours right and catching the 'vibe' of something is so hard when you're not a professional photographer that actually understands what he's doing instead of *click click I have no idea* xD

Ugh, no :( I take pictures with my iPhone, I really need to get a better camera!! ^^; It doesnt't help that I hate taking pictures so most of the time I only take exactly 5 pictures of everything xD

Wow you take these kind of pictures with your Iphone? Those must have a pretty good camera then :o I have a 12 megapixel camera myself, but it's getting its senior moments, like 'huh what am I supposed to do? Where am I again?' argh xD So time for a new one I'm afraid, but the 'chique' ones cost so much -_-
But haha yeah the multiple photo's of everything is a good strategy, then you have more chance of at least having one decent picture :D and indeed, I don't really like taking pictures either. I just don't get how it works and it doesn't really interest me either, and that's not a good combination :D

Same here! Once I finish something I just let it rot on my desk and most things never look as nice in pictures so there's not much motivation to take pics.. ^^;

The poop deck on the barge, lol.
It means that the deck was made of gold.
