I've combined a number of vintage elements in this lovely necklace. A brass locket sourced from old warehouse stock has been finished with a metal ink in soft gold. I have embellished it with a vintage green glass cameo that I purchased in Prague some years ago, vintage Japanese-made pearl beads and repurposed 1960s emerald beads. The locket opens to provide a place to hold one or more special keepsakes.
This necklace is:
- ethically and sustainably made
- one of a kind
- made with vintage 1960s locket, cameo and beads and pearl beads from the 1980s
- 46 cm along the neck edge (refer to my necklace guide for more information)
- finished with a hook clasp
Sustainably made in my Melbourne workshop, this necklace contains vintage and repurposed materials which show signs of their age in a deepened patina and minor wear. I think that is what gives them so much charm.
