This statement necklace features a repurposed vintage leaf-shaped half buckle which has a really interesting patina. I embellished this buckle with an orphaned 1950-60s pearl and rhinestone screw-back earring and created a woven collar of vintage coffee coloured pearlised beads. These beads were made in the 1950s-60s and sourced from old warehouse stock.
The necklace measures approximately 50 cm along the neck edge and is finished with a copper coloured chain, a vintage style hook and a small extender chain.
This handmade necklace contains vintage repurposed materials. These hold some evidence of their former life in a deepened patina and minor wear; I think that is what gives them so much charm.
