Beautiful, precious... the beginnings of an Heirloom. A splendid Victorian broach style necklace with a unique combination of materials. I began with with an inspiring antique style broach fitting with four pear shape cut outs which I filled with my hand formed clay of blue and mint green flowers; a pearl for the center. Clay is tempered to last and finished with a soft glazing to bring out the colors. Carefully placed Swarovski rhinestones are fitted along the outline. It had to be finished with a natural leather to contradict and modernize "Victorian" for today's woman. This looks gorgeous on, made to sit right on the chest and has an extension so you can adjust to your favorite spot.
I try all of my creations on as I go along to be sure they sit exactly where they look the best, I didn't want to take this one off, it's really different and stole my heart. Enjoy!
Pendant is 2" x 2".
Total length of the necklace hangs 13" with a 1" extension.
Antique brass lobster claw closure.
