We have so nice sunny weather today and so I decided to make a somewhat archaic necklace design with yellow and blue inspired by one of my photos that I took a couple of years ago:

going archaic  20140910

Here is the inspirational picture:

going archaic  127_2710

In case you'd like to know, this is the Ishtar Gate, one of the gates to the inner city of Babylon.
It's located in the Pargamonmuseum, which unfortunately will be partly renovated so that it's name-giving Pergamon altar is off limits for the next years (?) But the rest of the museum will remain open for public so if you ever visit Berlin, this is definitely a must see. sunny

That bracelet is so beautiful. I run out of adjectives!
I'll probably not be able to see Ishtar Gate anytime soon, but your photo is an inspiration for something to do with my Lapis bead.
