This beautiful necklace has at its centre a vintage rhinestone embellished earring depicting Queen Marie Antoinette made around the 1960s. I have combined it with hand-knotted, lustrous vintage pearl beads made in Japan which I sourced from old warehouse stock.
It measures 44 cm along the neck edge and is finished with a hook clasp.
Made by hand in Australia, this 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..
