Reversible necklace on at 18-inch silvertone chain. It is made from a 1 1/4-inch by 3/4 inch piece of brass hinge that has a lovely rusty-red patina on one side and an equally beautiful verdigris patina on the other. The entire piece of reclaimed hardware has been sealed with decoupage medium and is one of a kind.

I discovered the hinge on Newport's historic Bellevue Avenue, so it's a fancy found object -- I like to imagine it was originally a hinge on a small steamer trunk one of the ladies in the Newport 400 used while traveling to Europe on a White Star ocean liner. Maybe the trunk needed repair after sitting in the attic of one of the mansions all these years, and the broken piece of the original fell out of the carpenter's toolbox on his way home.

Maybe not, but the piece of reclaimed hardware makes an interesting minimalist necklace that is sure to add some artistic flair to any outfit.

The necklace can be made in any length for you. Simply write in the length you desire in the seller's instructions when you check out.
