I was inspired to make this pretty Spring themed necklace by a vintage jewellery advertisement published for Coro in 1951. I think it evokes the freshness of Spring with its crisp white and green colours.

I created the central flower using repurposed white seed beads and a vintage yellow pearl bead.  Two pressed glass leaves from the 1960s-70s that I found in a Prague flea market complete the floral centrepiece. I combined my handmade flower with milk glass beads that I repurposed from a vintage necklace. You can see the advertisement that inspired this story here.

It measures 44.5 cm along the neck edge and is finished with a hook clasp. 

This necklace is sustainably made and 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.

Handmade in Australia.
