I have mounted a vintage black and white cameo on a vintage watch part, a vintage mother of pearl buckle and an antiqued gold filigree pendant. Vintage jet beads dangle from the bottom of the filigree and complete the necklace with small clear glass spacer beads.
The necklace is 17" long and the overall pendant is 3-3/4" long.
This necklace was lovingly handmade by me and is one of a kind. 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.
