Italian Florentine Renaissance Inspired Beaded Pendand and Earrings

This pendant and matching earrings are inspired by renaissance painting. Especially they are inspired by a historical event I went recently and by the gorgeous costumes they were wearing at the parade.
The pitcures do not show the proper teal and deep golden colour of this set. I really really love them.
