This elegant double stranded necklace has been made with vintage Japanese-made pearl beads in a lustrous silver colour which I sourced from old warehouse stock. These date from the 1950s-1960s. I named this necklace "Fern" in honour of the repurposed clip back earring embossed with curling frond shapes which I have used as its focal piece.
It is finished with a hook clasp, measures 45.5 cm along the neck edge and has a 3 cm extender chain which means it can be adjusted in length.
This handmade necklace contains both 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.
