Vintage Assemblage Jewelry

Hi Everyone:

Lately I've become interested in assembling vintage jewelry, so I started another blog named Bijoux Assemblage.  Please feel free to visit.  There are some nice links to other assemblage artists.  I hope to add new pieces often.

Here is one of my latest pieces.
The main focal beads in this piece are vintage German textured lucite beads in the colors of off-white and pale green, with brass vintage clasp with daisy beads on top. It was originally a bracelet from a vintage shop in PA. I took it apart and refashioned and rewired the clasp with vintage pearl chain for added strength. The clasp opens on the side with a squeeze shaft. The inscription on the back of the clasp faintly reads "West Germany."

The rest of the necklace was assembled with vintage tiny champagne pearl chain, wire wrapped green stones, and a removable vintage focal brooch, with an image of a man serenading a beautiful lady. A pair of vintage rhinestone chandelier pieces were added for an extra bit of bling and to balance the entire piece.

This vintage assemblage necklace is a one-of-a-kind elegant necklace, completely unique with a German and French theme. Perfect to wear in the evening, in the office, or on the weekend.

Necklace is 17" long. West German daisy clasp is worn in the front -- or necklace can fit on right over your head. Definitely a conversation piece to compliment your wardrobe. Be unique and add this piece to your collection.


I'm also taking an online class with Deryn Mentock. Please visit her blog Something Sublime.

Auf Wiedersehen!
