This opulent yet simple antique gold and turquoise necklace was inspired by the jewellery of the Tudors. I have combined a repurposed oval shaped dress clip circa 1930s with double strands of vintage textured rope chain from the 1960s-70s.
It measures approximately 50.5 cm along the neck edge and is finished with a hook clasp.
Handmade 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.
