Don a badge of style.

In rich tones of antiqued brass, shimmery browns, and garnet, this upcycled necklace is a real treat. The pendant is created out of a vintage bicycle head badge that reads, “VAN HAUWAERT SPECIAL” and is embossed with the profile of a regal looking lion. Three brown Swarovski crystals and a faceted garnet bead with tassel add a touch of color to the shield. Two strands of pearly rosary beads dangle above the badge. Two vintage brassy linked chains connect in the back to a lobster clasp. It’s a real coat of charms.

Head badge – 2 ¾” tall

Bead and tassel – 2” (combined length)

Necklace – 18” long

Every piece comes creatively wrapped with vintage ephemera. Visit my blog to see samples:
