I repurposed some peppermint and white flowers from a broken vintage earring to make the floral centrepiece of this necklace. I used some lovely rice shaped faceted beads from a 1950s necklace, milk glass beads from old warehouse stock and repurposed peppermint coloured seed beads to complete this fresh and pretty necklace.
It measures 45 cm along the neck edge and is finished with a hook clasp.
Sustainably made by hand in Australia, this necklace contains vintage and repurposed materials which hold some evidence of their former life in a deepened patina and minor wear. I think that is what gives them so much charm.
