Undersea Jewels Necklace - Sold

Price: Sold

Length: 21" & 23"

Creatures and components of the sea world. Firstly, there is an excellent vintage pearl necklace which is altered onto the shorter chain, it has starfish & shell charms and very pretty crystal glass pearls. On the longer chain I dangled a glass opalite drop, a mother-of-pearl shell drop, and a vintage shell-textured bead! The clasp is a spring ring clasp. Only piece in the world. Please note that the vintage components will show a tiny bit of wear, but aesthetics are not affected.

Hi everyone I'm sooo sorry for neglecting this blog, I've been busy with my other shop! I am now trading in vintage jewellery and spending quite alot of time restoring & cleaning them, leaving me with no more energy (and money =P) to create my own designs. I wonder if those restored jewellery are considered handmade since recycled jewellery are all the rage now. Anyhow do check them out at Lemon Kitscharms, which also includes some contemporary pieces as well!
