I was inspired to make this necklace from a sterling silver antique Victorian Pencil that I found as well as a custom corset and skirt that was made for me by a fellow etsian Bonzie (please look her up, she's got some beautiful clothing).
The pencil was made circa 1890 (stamped sterling on the tip of the pencil barrel) and is in excellent condition. It still has some of the original lead in it. You simply pull it out and it expands from 1 7/8" to 3 1/4." A beautiful rare piece indeed! The pencil is removable via lobster claw clasp just in case you're in a pinch and don't have a pencil around!
The necklace is made from an 18" chain of peacock hued freshwater pearls, labradorite smooth oval beads with lots of flash, labradorite briolettes and rondelles, chubby vibrant dark purple amethyst briolettes, light amethyst coins, and blue-grey iolite briolettes. The necklace comes with sterling a 3" extender chain and hook closure.
Please note: no flash in these pictures, just a well lit area. Click on the pictures for better detailed pictures.
Feel free to ask questions, I have lots more pictures of this necklace because it is so full of details!
