Vintage Metals Meet Stones, Stones and More Stones
OOAK, 2012

I have recently discovered a liking for vintage chain. There are some gorgeous vintage chains, findings and much, much more to be had for the asking.
Most seems to be of a better quality than what we get now, and a great number of times at a better price.

The front part of this necklace is made of vintage and some new chain and findings. The back half is strung on 49 strand wire, and held together by crimps, and crimp covers, and wire guardians to prevent fray and breakage.
Now anyone who has read any of the descriptions of the jewelry I make, knows I prefer Scrimps to crimps, but, sometimes they cannot be used (they just don't fit) this is one of those times. So I revert back to the way I first learned (the way most people still work)

The stones used on this necklace are like a 13 bean soup - what an attractive mix! Onyx, agate, calcite, carnelian, leopolidite, multi-jade, jasper....I might have missed some.

The clasp, I pieced together from findings I had on hand, looks like a large fish hook caught a passing butterfly! lol

One of carved flowers in the photos has moved around, and is askew, you see it from the side instead of from the front. They are strung on fancy headpins, so there is some movement. Unfortunately, the photographer was more caught up in getting a great clear shot, than making sure everything was sitting properly in the photo. Sorry!

The necklace measures 18 inches long. The longest black dangle comes in at 3 inches. There would be room for an extender, if you wanted a longer necklace.
