Part of an odalisque

My Photoshop nude study tonight involves jewelry, which I need to integrate into the figure without making it look stuck on. After all, those fantasy babes are always wearing some sort of metallic stuff which looks good against bare skin. This picture is based on a 1937 glamour shot by photographer Max Thorek, who was not only a famous surgeon and medical writer but a violinist and a renowned photographer as well. They don't make 'em like they used to, or maybe they do, multi-talented multi-taskers in the digital age.
