You will find additional one of a kind JRyenDesigns necklace creations here:
The focal point of this one of a kind vintage repurposed necklace is the antique Art Nouveau watch pin holder (pin mechanism removed) with pretty detailed bird accent and half circle of clear round rhinestones from which a brass metal Art Nouveau heart locket hangs. I've wire wrapped this locket to a turquoise glass bead with loop at top allowing the locket to be attached to the bird accent by slipping it over the hook on the back side or removed. This heart locket has a pretty embossed design, on both the front and back sides. There is a bit of tarnish along the edges of the flower accent and as well at the side hinge. The locket opens and closes easily and still has both of its inside frames. One side also has the vintage cellophane cover.
My color inspiration comes from the very unique and old art glass beads that have various colored glass dots. Using 14K gold filled wire (for quality and durability) I've wire wrapped the necklace strands using vintage glass beads in turquoise blue, amber and red tones along with vintage gold filled tube beads. The necklace closure is a spring ring style that is also gold filled. I've also forged an adjustable length section at the end using gold filled wire allowing you to wear the necklace at varying lengths. To this end I've attached a vintage red enamel brass heart charm.
Measurements: This necklace can be worn at 17 1/2", 18" or 18 1/2". The bird accent measures 1" across by 3/4". The heart locket section measures 2" by 1" across. With the heart attached to the bird, this centerpiece hangs 2 3/4" in length.
Condition: Overall very good to excellent vintage condition elements
Quality vintage is always timeless, don't settle for imitation or reproduction. I only offer creations that I would be proud to wear. I take the utmost care in quality, creativity and design choosing beautiful vintage components to incorporate and feature into my designs. No two designs are ever the same. When you purchase a JryenDesigns item you are purchasing a piece of jewelry that only you will have and own.
