Pearls and games

The theme my diptych partner Eva and I were given for week 9 was "Heirloom". I have to admit I wasn't particularly inspired and being limited on time I gave myself a time limit of 15 minutes to create the image. Knowing that I didn't have any real ideas for the theme, I set myself on the task of creating a still life with an old pearl necklace I have had for 16 years. The case you see is actually a gift I was given from my Mr. for my recent 30th birthday. Inside this beautiful intricately painted case is one of my favourite games, Mahjong. Second only to my love for chess. :)
