Steel is so very strong that I can do things with it that look delicate. The framework on this piece is slim (1/8 inch in diameter) and elegantly spiraled. It supports the chain wings on the back- and the little chain epaulettes on the shoulders, in a comfortable, even way- you'll forget you're wearing her. The chain is well closed- it will not catch on your clothing. This piece is absolutely stunning, worn or hung on the wall. I've never had a piece in my booth that got more attention.
Steel is hard to adjust- but because of the way this was formed, it can be done. Right now it fits a neck between 12 and 14 inches around. It can be sized up to about a 15 inch neck.
