MON DOUX ANGE, (MY SWEET ANGEL) and She is for sure, SWEET! This Necklace began when I won this BEAUTIFUL ART NOUVEAU ARCHANGEL BROOCH from my Fav FRENCH SELLER! I feel so Blessed to have won her because a lot of buyers wanted Her! This is a True Vintage Brooch, not New, and She is in Very Good Condition with the normal amount of age wear for a Vintage Brooch. The English created the name for the Period ART NOUVEAU (NEW ART) as the name for the Design Period but although the English started the Movement it was completely embraced by the FRENCH, maybe even more so than the ENGLISH. The ART NOUVEAU PERIOD was approximately from (1890-1914) and was influenced by Natural Forms and Structures particularly the curved lines of Plants and Flowers. I just had to have this Lovely Angel because Her Lines are so Beautifully Fluid with Movement in Her Design, She is a Perfect Example of the Period. She has Huge Amazing Wings are so Very Elegant with Her Wings enfolding Her. Her Hair is so Long and Flowing like the Wind is sweeping thru it. I also LOVE the draping of Her Gown, it wraps around Her and flows down wraps around the Bottom of Her Wings and meeting at your Feet where She stands on it. This ANGEL has such a LOVELY DESIGN! This Angel was cast in a Silver Tone Metal but since it is not marked I cannot say what the Metal Content is. I wanted to make an Unusual Necklace for this French Treasure so I chose Beautiful Grey Cultured Baroque Kasumi Pearls. These are Large Pearls measuring 11MM-12MM with the Pearls having a Smooth to Wrinkly Texture to them that Kasumi Pearls are known for. This Surface Irregularity in these Kasumi Pearls are part of the Pearls natural growth pattern and are not considered to be Flaws. While each Pearl is a Unique One of a Kind Pearl these Pearls have gone thru a Plating Process that gives them there Uniform Color. There are 20 Pearls that make up the Necklace. I used STERLING SILVER WIRE to make the Chain for the Pearls. I then hung an ANTIQUE SOLID SILVER ENGRAVED NUN CROSS from the bottom of the ANGEL BROOCH. This CROSS is a TRUE ANTIQUE CROSS not a Reproduction. This Cross is Engraved on both sides with a SACRED HEART. One of the sides has an Engraved Infinity Symbol above the Sacred Heart with the date (OCHTOBER 1865) and the other side is engraved with the name (C. DEV VOS). This CROSS is not marked but TEST as Solid Silver. I then hung a Large Beautiful Baroque Grey Pearl from the bottom of the CROSS. I have used a STERLING SILVER TOGGLE CLASP for the CLASP. Although all SILVER connecting Pieces are not marked they all Test as Sterling Silver. I have OXIDIZED DARK the Chain Wire to work with the Antique Cross. The total length of the Necklace is 31 inches long. A Mop Beads and STERLING SILVER FLEUR DE LIS CHARM drape down from the CLASP. The Necklace can be customized to the buyers preference. I offer GENEROUS LAYAWAY TERMS to my buyers. I have seen this piece Recast in Brass by a Big Jewelry supplies company that begins with V. They obviously thought it was a Special Piece to include it in there Line of Jewelry making supplies for sale. This however is an Original Vintage Brooch that I purchased from FRANCE. This is a FAITH inspired Necklace that would be a LOVELY addition if you Love collecting ANGEL JEWELRY! Thanks for visiting FRENCHEVANGELINEROSE on RUBY LANE!
