Upcycled jewelry and accessories from Key of A - Our popular "Salt of the Earth" long length pendant necklace

This stylish long length necklace has a genuine pewter mini salt shaker. The shaker has been cleaned up and the ridges used to screw the cap on/off have been cleaned as well to ensure a smooth and secure fit. The gold around the rim indicates that the entire cap was once this gold colored but has since worn off. Gives it a nice "mixed metal" appearance in our opinion...and a bit of vintage character as well!

We used ruby red beadwork in an asymmetrical fashion with a larger 12mm bead used to suspend the salt shaker. The shaker is flanked by a tiny vintage jewelry box skeleton key for added embellishment.

The chain closes with a pocketwatch swivel clasp that clips easily to a twisted rope ring. The length of the cable chain totals 30", a great length for today's clothing styles.

The cap of the shaker easily screws on and off so you can keep treasures inside, some perfume on a cotton ball, or maybe even a small note to the special person you feel is your "salt of the earth"!!

DON'T KNOW THE MEANING OF SALT? Salt has always been associated with purity and worth. You've heard the saying, "Are you worth your salt?" Here is the history:

The meaning of the phrase originated with the Bible when Jesus said that man was the "salt of the earth". Centuries ago, salt was priceless, Roman soldiers were paid in salt, called a "salarium" in Latin, which is where we get our word "salary" today. Google the history of salt to learn even more!!!
