I created this necklace using an unfinished vintage brass locket once intended for gold-plating which I embellished with an emerald green glass cameo that I found in a Prague flea market. This glass cameo was made in the Jablonec region of Czechoslovakia during the 1960s. I finished my design with lustrous Japanese-made pearl beads and repurposed emerald beads which came from a broken 1960s stranded necklace.
This necklace measures 43 cm along the neck edge with the locket 3 cm in diameter. It is perfect for holding a special keepsake or two.
A limited edition bracelet made with matching glass cameos is available here
Sustainably made, 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.
Handmade in Australia.
