Each piece is carefully selected according to colour and is shaved to thickness and then glued on. The colour of each piece is extremely fast and will last for several hundred years. It will also change from green to blue depending on the light. This is an exotic and magical set of jewelry which requires great skills to produce. All done by hand at Lotus Arts de Vivre.
