Rhinestone Button Assemblage Necklace

Jan's Description

If you are looking for Bling, this necklace has it. I have taken vintage rhinestone buttons and affixed them to vintage buttons, some of them are mother of pearl. I added black faceted glass beads, large vintage crystal beads and rhinestone rondelles.

The necklace is 15" long which includes a 2.5" sterling silver chain extender. It closes with a large hook clasp.

This necklace is one of a kind and lovingly handmade by me in my home studio in San Francisco. Most of my creations are a mix of antique, vintage, and new parts, some of which may (or may not) show signs of aging and wear. I feel that such “imperfections” only add character to the piece and hope that you do too.
