A stunning winged-heart design inspired by Victorian mourning jewelry, make a statement with this eye-catching and dramatic piece. This is a true one of a kind item as the heart center-piece is an unusual vintage item found in an antique shop: A small padded velvet heart embellished with tiny beads, purple diamante gemstones and coiled metal thread. The metal thread has tarnished over the years but in my opinion this adds to its appeal and the feel of a treasured keepsake discovered at the bottom of a forgotten jewelry box. Oxidized silver-plated jump-rings connect the heart to two gold-coloured wing or leaf-shaped pieces mounted on pieces of top-quality black leather. The 0.5" (13mm) wide silk ribbon completes the necklace and adds to the dramatic mourning-jewelry style. The gold-colored leaves were up-cycled from a 1980's necklace and the leather came from off-cuts bought from a high-quality local leather bag shop.

The necklace ties in a bow at the back of the neck, and the length of the necklace, 37" (95 cm), is generous enough to allow for different length preferences. It feels tactile to wear, as the pure silk ribbon is soft and fine and the backs of the leather pieces have a suede texture.
The heart is 1.4" (34mm) long, 1.3" (32mm) wide and .25" (6mm) thick, and the leather pieces 0.8" (21mm) long. The beaded heart seems to have sustained some kind of glue stain in its life before I found it, this is shown clearly in the second photo, please check it out.
