Heaps of upcycled vintage faux pearls adorn a sweep of tangled chains to make up this killer statement necklace. The pearls on this version are in an assortment of milky cream tones ranging from true white to pale, dusty cream. Some of the pearls are very old and worn, they've lost their lustre completely exposing the milk white glass underneath or have a gorgeously chippy and mottled texture.
The chains are in an assortment of darkly hand-oxidized brass tones. All of the chains and metal components are new or vintage dead stock and all have been patinated by hand to achieve a variety of brown tones (no two are exactly the same shade). All brass parts are sealed with a jewelry grade wax based sealant to help prevent rub-off, but they will lighten a bit with time and wear.
The shortest strand sits at 18" (right along the collarbones). Longest chain cascades to 22". Secures at the back of the neck with an oversized handmade brass hook clasp. A 3" extender dangles at the clasp, finished off with a signature Savage Salvage crystal/bullet charm. You'll look just as fierce leaving the room as you did on the way in!
This particular necklace has a nice substantial weight to it, it weighs just under a pound. The weight is carefully distributed among those chunky chains, so it won't dig into your neck, it is surprisingly comfortable for such a substantial piece. But, if you are very petite or have a particularly sensitive neck, this design is not recommended for you. I can make similar designs in lightweight vintage plastic pearls. If you are interested please convo for details.
The US shipping price, listed below, is for first class mail with insurance.
As with all Savage Salvage designs, many of the materials that I use are recycled, repurposed, vintage or antique. They usually show signs of their past lives. They may have some scratches, chips, discoloration or patina from age. I feel that such imperfections lend authenticity to my designs. If you don't like things that look archaic and a bit worn, then my designs are probably not for you.
Thanks for looking!
