Life is too short to wear boring jewelry. This is a necklace for those who want to start conversations or be noticed, or exert their individualism. The centerpiece is a rare glass cabochon from the 1950s. It’s not perfect, as it’s been around awhile, but it’s imperfections have a way of making it more mystical, as if it has a story of its own to tell. Besides that, the cabochon has a magical way of catching and holding the light. Its beaded setting is riveted to two pieces of filigree, one in antique brass and the other in an Envious Green patina. Protecting the stone on both sides are two patina’d brass monkeys sporting Envious Green patina’d wings. The assemblage is riveted to a brass collar sporting mawjanga’s rusty Island Gypsy patina. Tiny, adorned lace filigree provide detail where the Czech glass pearl necklace attaches to the collar. The necklace is handmade rosary style with pale copper glass pearls alternating with French filigree beads. The necklace closes with a detailed vintage lobster clasp and a Swarovski crystal dangle. The necklace measures about nineteen inches in length not including a one-inch extender. The bib part of the necklace is four and three-quarters inches at its widest and about three and a half inches long. If you would like the necklace shortened let me know via convo and I will adjust it for you.
Also available separately are rare vintage brass dangle earrings. These are not intended to be a perfect match with the necklace, but rather a compliment to the necklace. The brass connectors are also from the 1950s and have been naturally patina’d over time. They dangle a wire wrapped Czech glass pearl in a deeper shade of copper. Handmade fish hook ear wires —made from hypoallergenic niobium wire—finish the earrings. Buy either piece or buy both and save!
