Offered for sale is an antique pendant, vintage 1930s. The pendant is a brass rosette with a raised pattern of "petals," a center raised bead, and intricate open-work on the side. It has a top loop and fancy twisted jump ring, and two brass chain swags attached. The pendant hangs on an antiqued brass chain accented with tiny antiqued brass beads. It is unusual and lovely.

The pendant was found in a collection of jewelry in an estate in Central Pennsylvania. The pendant at the time that it was found had the top twisted jump ring and the two loops on the back, and no more. The age is difficult to determine but, based on the age of the jewelry in the estate, a conservative guess is that it is no later than 1940s.

The rosette is too beautiful not to use or wear. Therefore, it was upcycled using antiqued components which match the color and design of the rosette. Two antiqued brass chain swags were attached with antiqued jump rings to the loops on the back of the rosette. A smaller, twisted jump ring was added to the larger, original twisted jump ring on the bail, and the twisted rings match perfectly. The chain chosen is an antiqued brass chain with flattened, oval loops, and tiny antiqued brass beads were added along the length, matching the raised center bead in the rosette. The chain was finished at 20" with an antiqued lobster-claw clasp. The effect is very Victorian, very Art Nouveau.

This necklace is a one-of-a-kind, and another like it will never be found. It would make a lovely gift or addition to a vintage collection.
