From the show’s catalogue:
Epic style captures Dori Csengeri Imagination, and her Camelot haute couture necklace is a reminiscent of medieval gowns, fierce battle gear and dragons’ scales.  With its immaculate embellishments and its hand-stitched linen embossed with gold leaf, the necklace strives to find as Csengeri puts it, the “balance between timelessness and timeliness”.
