Bead Necklace and Earrings 2


I have collected a sizable collection of vintage jewelry over the years – personal and family – this is the necklace that best indicates the direction I would like to take with my jewelry.  The recycled beads in this piece were wonderful!  By adding a few small beads, some faux pearls and a gem medallion I was able to re-use the ‘matched’ bead vintage pieces and update them in this necklace.

Of Course I needed some ‘chunky’ earrings to go with the necklace!


The longest strand is approximately 24″ or 61 cm plus 1″ or 2.5 cm pendant.


In the artist’s collection.
