In this delightful necklace I've combined a fragment from a broken vintage brooch with repurposed hand-knotted milk glass beads, a vintage style connector and an Opalite bead. The brooch fragment is set with a milk glass cabochon as well as a faux moonstone with a soft moonglow sheen.
Opalite is a man-made stone which has an opalescent blue hue with hints of fiery orange depending on the way light strikes it. It is said to have a soft soothing effect when held or viewed.
This necklace is:
- ethically and sustainably made
- one of a kind
- made with repurposed 1950-60s vintage costume jewellery and semi-precious Opalite
- 44.5 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.
