A Modern Twist on a Family Heirloom

My cousin challenged me to come up with a modern way for her to wear an antique family heirloom. This beautiful brooch belonged to her grandmother-n-law. My cousin, who's not a brooch wearing kinda girl (neither am I), wanted a simple yet sophisticated way to incorporate it into somthing she could wear almost everyday.

By connecting double chains to the filigree work on the brooch, I was able to create this simple necklace.
