I have had this piece for about 20 years and only recently discovered who the designer is. Patrice jewelry is still being made, but this is one of her earlier pieces. The same pendant, with a different chain and minus the lion head on the bail, is still being made today. Her pieces are very 3 dimensional and usually have some sort of figural (often Egyptian) theme on the back. The gold tone cross features a faux tiger eye glass cabochon and is set on a creamy white lucite base. The bail has a wonderful lion's head and the back has Egyptian figures. It is suspended on a continuous link 30 inch chain that slip over your head.
This is in excellent condition, it looks as good as the day it was made. The pendant measures 2.75 x 2 inches, including the bail.
