Antique Key Escutcheon Necklace

Jan's Description

An antique brass key escutcheon found at an Italian antique market is the inspiration for this necklace. I added some old crystals with an unusual vintage charm reflecting an "Aladdin's lamp" atop some books. Charm is marked “Italy” on the back. Vintage chain completes the necklace.

Necklace is 30" long. The charm is 1-1/4" in diameter.

This necklace is lovingly handmade by me and is one of a kind. Most of my creations are a mix of antique, vintage, and newer parts, some of which may show signs of aging and wear. I feel that such imperfections only add character to the piece and hope that you do too.
