I have repurposed a vintage chandelier crystal to become a pendant in this upcycled statement necklace. It is suspended from a lovely shimmering bronze coloured glass bead repurposed from a broken Hattie Carnegie necklace. I created the chain by hand-wiring vintage jet coloured glass beads made in Czechoslovakia with faux tortoiseshell beads that I sourced from old warehouse stock.
The chain measures 84 cm around the neck edge with the pendant dropping 9 cm below that.
Sustainably made in Australia, this necklace contains vintage and 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.
