A colorful bib statement necklace with chunky black, gunmetal, and silver chains. A vintage religious rosary assemblage of found objects. A handmade vintage rosary necklace draping long layer upon layer of chain and vintage rosaries, crosses, religious charms, gemstones and beads. Brightly alive in color and spirit. A dramatic bib effect for an edgy romantic feel.

I used several vintage plastic rosaries, combined with the so-now chunky black aluminum chain creating a surprisingly ultra-lightweight necklace that's very easy to wear! The entire ensemble weighs about 10 ounces. Finished off with a new sturdy chain for maximum comfort on the neckline.

*Shortest measures 18-22 inches, lobster clasp, extender chain
*Longest measures 40-44 inches
*Rosaries, crosses, medals, and beads are recycled, repurposed, and vintage

Worn on the shortest link, the longest length of chain hits about 1.5 inches below my navel. Hope that helps.

I am blessed to acquire an eclectic collection of antique rosaries. Each piece is created to honor and appreciate the antique value of sacred devotionals and the art forms that contribute to their beauty. Ensembles of joyful and reverent energy.
