Looking like a vintage French heirloom, this unique necklace features an exceptional genuine mother of pearl cabochon ornamented with a vintage French brass Notre Dame insignia. The cabochon is securely set in a new brass Art Nouveau style pendant setting that has been antiqued, then sealed with wax and buffed to a soft sheen. Vintage brass filigree was carefully shaped to create the perfect bail. A pendant this special deserved an equally special necklace, so I crocheted a diamond pattern bead rope in pale French colors: gold, aqua, pink and white. The 22.5-inch necklace ends in vintage brass bead caps adorned with Swarovski glass pearls and closes securely with a hook and loop that's easy to get on and off. This vintage style one-of-a-kind handmade necklace is certain to become a treasured heirloom.
