Vintage Buttons and Vintage Red Glass Bead Necklace

Jan's Description

This fun and bright necklace has been created from vintage parts. The pendant is a stack of 3 buttons and topped with a Venetian millefiori bead. I have restrung vintage red glass faceted beads to complete this one-of-a-kind, handmade necklace.

The pendant is almost 2" in diameter and the necklace is 18" long plus a beaded extension of 2 1/2". 

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.
