This statement necklace features a repurposed decoupaged and painted brooch featuring a bird nestled amid foliage. I mounted this on a gold metal filigree and combined it with vintage copper toned pearlised beads, black seed beads and a faceted black Onyx drop.
Black Onyx is said to be a powerful protection stone, absorbing and transforming negative energy.

Handmade in my Melbourne workshop, this necklace contains vintage repurposed materials which show signs of their age in a deepened patina and minor wear. I think that is what gives them so much charm.
