Miracle Top-Kapi Necklace
This lovely Miracle Top-Kapi Necklace crafted by iriina_bonus at LiveJournal pays homage to jewelry Top-Kapi palace in Istanbul and indicated that jewelry craftsmanship in Turkey is a "mixture of Byzantine heritage and practices of Arab artists came from the Seljuks." I just think this is beautiful and the story behind it makes it all the more interesting.
There is at tutorial on her blog here and it has been translated from Russian to English is the reason prose is a bit choppy.
