THE NECKLACE:

A vintage caravan turned into a fabulous and fun necklace. My bestseller and a great present for camping and vintage enthusiasts.

The caravan pendant is a photograph of a three-dimensional paper model I have created. It is professionally printed onto thick sturdy cardboard. The front of the pendant is protected by a layer of clear varnish, the back is pale blue paper. The pendant is approx 4 cm wide and 3 cm high (1.6 x 1.1 inches). The chain is approx. 42 cm / 16.5 inches long and silver or gold plaited.

AVAILABLE IN TWO ICONIC COLOURS: pale blue with a silver chain or light green with a golden chain.

The necklace ships for free inside the UK. International shipping is subsidised and only costs £1 to Europe and £1.90 to any other destination. Any additional items ship free of charge.

Caravan necklaces and earrings are also available, as well as typewriters and radios. Please take a look at my other listings.

This delightful necklace is part of ‘The Auction Guide’ – a splendid paper craft collection, designed in the smashing style of the 1950s & 60s. It's inspired by the vintage items I possess or wish to own and the stories they tell.

The necklace is affixed onto a professionally printed card and packed in a clear (biodegradable) plastic bag. The auction guide text is printed onto the back of the card. The forth image shows the packaging.


HOW YOUR CARAVAN IS CREATED:

Remember those happy hours you spent as a child with scissors in hand and coloured paper glued to your fingers? That was my inspiration for creating this small three-dimensional caravan (shown in the last picture). Today I mainly work with a scalpel and often use a pair of tweezers to ensure precision when creating my small-scale paper sculptures. Many hours go into working out the details and ensuring that all parts fit together neatly.
Once I’m satisfied with the result I photograph the object and get the image ready for print. All designs are professionally printed. The shapes are laser-cut and varnished by hand. The last step is to affix the chain and findings to the pendant.


PLEASE NOTE:

For long-term enjoyment, please handle with care and keep away from water. All plated chains are sensitive to moisture and chemicals. To enjoy your necklace longer, please keep away from perfume, water etc. The front of the pendant can be lightly wiped clean with a damp cloth, but please do not dip into water.

MANY THANKS FOR LOOKING!
