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 necklace with a touch of shabby-chic.
It measures 47 cm around the neck edge and is finished with a hook clasp.
Sustainably made in Australia, this 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.
