I've finally got around to finishing some jewellery and adding it to my Etsy
store. These pieces are all one of kind, I never make two the same. The fabric beads are all made by me as are the soldered pieces of china. I've also made the components that make up the pieces. The lengths can be adjusted by putting the hand made hook into any of the loops on the chain, making the pieces very versatile.
The finished necklace. SOLD
a vintage brass boot charm that was a very old button, an opening brass locket and a lovely old amber coloured globe that I've wired with brass wire.
the locket closed
repurposed jewellery, a very old army brass button, a vintage blue button and a very old bead from Africa
SOLD - Thank you
This is another necklace, it can be worn long or shortened by putting the hook into any of the chain links.
the brass circle swivels and is from a lamp fitting, the main bead is ceramic
I've soldered a piece of china and drilled a hole then added an eyelet, I've done the same for the beach glass.
this necklace also features one of my hand made fabric beads
the five drops of the necklace, it's very comfortable and easy to wear
This is the third necklace, again it can be worn long or shortened by putting the hand wired hook into one of the links of the chain.
I used a brass keyhole plate for the main feature, it has mica in the actual key hole to protect the art deco flower graphic, which is glued to the inside of the copper back of the piece
This shows the oxidized copper back that has been riveted to the brass front piece. There are brass spacers to separate the two pieces of metal.
another soldered piece of china, a very old key, a vintage button and one of my hand made fabric beads.
You can just see the brass spacers in this view. There are also semi precious stones, crystal beads and a very old African bead.
I have one more to be added to my Etsy
