Here is a spectacular OOAK necklace made with a unique array of new and vintage beads and components.
The single strand of big, beautiful freshwater brown or "chocolate" pearls mixed in with Tahitian brown pearls makes for a bold necklace.
These are separated by rustic brass African trade beads and culminate at the bottom with one half of a spectacular vintage belt buckle.
These are natural freshwater "brown" pearls.
The buckle is made of richly patinated brass and boasts an unprecedented design. The top is studded with clear rhinestones.
The center mounted crest shaped piece is either glass or a bakelite type material. It doesn't scratch like a plastic and it doesn't sound like plastic. It has a beautiful motif of ornate floral and geometric designs.
Finally, a fabulous hand wire-wrapped pendant with a dazzling burgundy-red glass Swarovski pearl, brass and copper African trade beads and a "tassel" of brass chains hanging from the bottom of the belt buckle.
The necklace joins with a classic copper lobster-claw clasp.
This is a big, bold necklace that gets lots of attention. The rich colors and smooth textures of the necklace along with the brass spacers make it fabulously unique.
It definitely has its own style using a mix of various era's jewelry trends.
The warm, rich colors of the pearls and metals, along with the intriguing pendant make this a very alluring piece that looks wonderful when worn.
I make my jewelry to withstand the test of time. The pieces are not designed to be a short term, but last through years of changing styles.
I only use the best quality materials and very unique focal pieces.
Lots of copy cats out there, but my designs are mine and original.
