"The Nest" - SOLD at JB

Good evening! It is a wonderful sunshine filled evening in Minnesota, and as I sat down to post a blog post, the Mommy and Daddy cardinals are flying back and forth in front of our picture window, back n forth, back n forth. What a beautiful this is. The necklace isn't as colorful as a pair cardinals, but is every bit as eye catching. Again a one-of-a-kind design.
This is a two strand necklace with great texture and neutral colors. All of the beads used are vintage glass, but the tree branch, bird in flight dangle, and pale blue freshwater pearls are a vintage feel, but of new product. There is also a nest detail that is the dangle on the extension that is also a new, but vintage feel product.
A close-up shot of the fabulous detailing of this tree branch, nest and birds. I added the 3 fresh water pearls into the nest, as it was empty.

This shows the details of the one side of the necklace with the vintage beads I used. It is not symmetrical, so therefore this is the beads on one side and the below photo shows the other side.

This side of the necklace features vintage crystal chandelier beads that have been hand wire-wrapped into a fabulous section of black wire.

A vintage rhinestone button and a wire wrapped nest, with additional links to add length to this necklace.

A fabulous vintage rhinestone connector is show cased near the closure, which has a hand wire wrapped hook clasp.

Photo shows the detailing of the extension and its drops, as well as the hook closure and the vintage bead chains.

The necklace in its entirety. Again the photos don't do it justice as it is quite lovely in person. Once again a one-of-a-kind design. Contact me via email at gretchen.schaumann@comcast.net if you have further questions and for pricing.
