The beautiful necklace is from my "What a Charming Story" range.

Its is composed of antique and vintage 'curios" with a feminine vanity theme. These include:

- a small Edwardian enamelled powder or pill box;
- a stunning Edwardian or Victorian enamelled buckle;
- a small perfume bottle with bakelite lid (circa 1930's);
- a brass lipstick (circa 1940's);
- a medallion from a convent;
- a brass laundry pin;
- a brass thimble;
- antique cufflinks;
- a brass locket;
- an antique fob watch key;
- a brass Victorian button:
- a small crucifix;
- 2 enamelled flowers (formerly a ladies' earrings); and
- a small celluloid flower.

The charms are layered on vintage brass chain chain in 2 tiers to create a beautiful "bib" effect. I have then added a thrid tier with antique emerald beads capped with brass and a center stone made of cobalt quartz. The neck is finished with more emerald green crystals, cobalt quartz and brass chain.

The neck circumference of the inner most chain measures 16 inches. I have also added an additional 2 inches of length via an extension chain. However, I much prefer this style of necklace worn high on the neck (not dangling between the breasts) as it showcases the charms to better effect. For tips on how to wear my charm necklaces, please refer to my "shop policies" section.

This is a really stunning piece full of many hard to find vintage cosmetic trinkets which will no doubt appeal to the girl inside us all! Enjoy!

Please note: my adorable sister is always trying to get me to polish and clean up my brass pieces. I much prefer however to leave my brass aged! Similarly, I left the remnants of perfume in the perfume bottle (I love smelling it!) and the red lipstick inside the holder. You may polish and clean up the pieces if you so desire.

Postage note: the postage price quoted is for regular airmail only. If you require tracking via registration (another $11) or insurance (for which I can obtain a quote) please advise after purchase. However, unless requested by you at the time of purchase, I will go ahead and post as per the original listing guidelines. Please understand that postage risk lies with the buyer and I can not compensate for lost mail items execpt where insurance has been paid for (sorry!). Please refer “shop policies”
