I found this ornate and exquisite center piece from a metal-smith from Nepal who was exhibiting his work at an annual jewellery fair. The vibrancy of the lapis lazuli and carnelian contrasted beautifully amidst the ornate detailing of the center piece, which I paired with lapis lazuli beads, carnelian and lapis tassel.
