This elegant and stylish y-shaped necklace features a handmade chain created from repurposed 1970s necklace links and Czechoslovakian-made garnet beads from old warehouse stock. These are connected to a vintage flower-embossed connector from which is suspended an antique key. This key has been sealed with Renaissance wax to protect it.
It measures 47 cm along the neck edge and is finished with a hook clasp.
This piece of jewellery has been lovingly handmade in my Australian workshop with vintage and 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.
