Did you know that the "Space Age" officially began in 1957 with the launch of the Sputnik satellite?
This necklace celebrates that leap into space with a space-technology inspired clip-back earring, rhinestone beads made in Czechoslovakia and vintage purple and pink plastic-coated beads that remind me of planets "hanging" in space.
This necklace is:
- ethically and sustainably made
- one of a kind
- made with vintage and repurposed materials including 1960s-70s beads sourced from old warehouse stock, metal chain and a 1960s clip-back earring
- 83 cm in the chain length (refer to my necklace guide for more information) with the pendant measuring 9 cm
Handmade in my Melbourne workshop, 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.
