Upcycled Necklace

Upcycled Necklace


This asymmetrical piece began with old costume jewelry. I used a costume multi-strand chain necklace and its original clasp, along with an old brooch. One side is beaded with glass seed beads, citrine chips, jade, crystal, and two black enameled cloisonne beads with pink roses.

The clasp is a easy tab-pull snap clasp. The piece measures approximately 22 inches in diameter, with the tassel hanging about 3 inches below. Please note that the metals used are not real gold.

This piece was designed for the fashionSPARK 2011 runway show, paired with Green Fascinator with Black Feathers.
