This lovely sautoir necklace features a vintage chandelier crystal which has been repurposed as a pendant. It is combined with vintage jet glass beads made in Czechoslovakia and faux tortoiseshell beads made circa 1960s which were sourced from old warehouse stock, and a beautiful vintage glass bead repurposed from a Hattie Carnegie necklace.
It measures 84 cm along the neck edge with the crystal drop measuring 9 cm in length.
This handmade necklace contains both 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.
