I have made this necklace using a somewhat battered but beautiful 1960s flower brooch fragment onto which I have placed a lovely black and gold ladybird.
Chunky black vintage beads repurposed from a 1960s necklace and vintage Czech glass beads complete this whimsical and fun necklace with a touch of shabby-chic.
It measures 46 cm along the neck edge and has a 4.5 cm extender chain so that it can be worn at different lengths to match your mood or your outfit.
Sustainably made by hand in Australia, this necklace contains vintage and repurposed materials which hold some evidence of their former life in a deepened patina and minor wear. I think that is what gives them so much charm.
