#18
Gorgeous Bling Necklace
SOLD
This necklace has its given name, as it so perfectly describes it.  I personally love this piece and would keep it, but I do need to reign in my personal collections at times.  My loss is your gain!
It is a generous 18" of silver tone chunky chain combined with a portion of antiqued copper tone chain near the focal to break it up a bit and add some color.  The palest of pink silk ribbon is tied to the joining point of the chain to the focal, which is a generous 2 1/4" length x 1 1/4" width vintage paste rhinestone piece.  Again there is patinae and some stones missing from this piece which only adds to the authenticity of the vintage redesign style.

Shades of Blue Necklace
$89.00  SOLD
The "Shades of Blue" necklace is filled with special elements and fun finds.  It has an overall length of 33 1/2" of length.  The 31" silver tone chain is a unique vintage style chain which I've used a portion of it for the chain along with the addition of a lot of vintage elements.  Some of these include mother of pearl vintage buttons, vintage key, vintage glass blue/gold button, lots of vintage glass and/or crystal beads, a gorgeous rhinestone set vintage street car element as well as a vintage AB rhinestone star shaped piece.  Many elements are hand wire-wrapped with my signature black wire.  This then connects to a vintage round pale blue rhinestone attachment measuring 1" diameter.   This vintage rhinestone blue bling connects the focal (1 1/2" diameter) which is a  vintage pocket watch mechanism that has these cool stripes on it.  I've attached a vintage mother of pearl daisy style flower into one of the round recesses, and also added a gorgeous vintage paste rhinestone and royal blue acorn piece along with a crown element.  The colors in this piece are beautiful shades of blues.

Thanks again for looking!

Asymmetrical Layers Necklace
$44.00  SOLD
This piece is much cooler in person, as it didn't photograph well.  There are layers of gold tone chains in an assortment of chain styles and lengths which make up this fun piece.  Casual, but yet elegant it's one of those necklaces you can layer with others time and time again.  Did I say time?  The vintage gold tone pocket watch mechanism is attached on the side, thus making this piece an asymmetrical design, and has been layered with a silver tone watch face and a gold tone detailed sparrow flying on it.  The focal is 1 1/2" in diameter, and the chain portion measures 26" at the shortest layer and varies up to 37" in length for the longest layer.  A lovely one-of-a-kind design, for sure.

I will continue to add more pieces as time allows.
