This is a unique and really stunning OOAK necklace with a vintage belt buck as the centerpiece.
These buckles are hard to find in an ornate style and in good condition. I'm a kid in a candy store when I find the right pieces. This one is perfect for conversion to jewelry. I think vintage buckles are very artistic and should be displayed.
The buckle itself is a little Deco in its stylization. I love the gold tone brass against the black. It makes a dramatic statement.
The central pendant is half of vintage brass belt buckle boasting dazzling black enamel and gorgeous stamped gold-tone embellishments. There are three tear-drop shaped cabochons that make it really dramatic.
It hangs wonderfully and is perfectly balanced by six chains with hand wire-wrapped components at the ends.
Each chain has two mesmerizing black Swarovski beads surrounded by two brass African beads and a brilliant yellow Swarovski bead at the top.
The brass chain shimmers with a wonderfully rich gold-tone finish.
The buckle and accompanying chains are suspended from a simple, graceful brass chain which is joined with a hand-wrought wire hook and loop clasp.
As you can see, the central pendant makes a bold statement. It looks and feels amazing when worn.
