Here's a sneak peak at a series of necklaces I made. I think I was inspired by these great vintage brass frames and the piles of ephemera I have & never use. Each piece is one-of-a-kind, and incorporates other vintage glass beads and charms. The brass has been aged, and the image and frame sealed for protection. They all hang from a delicate 20" brass chain.
This first one is a vintage London bus ticket- accented by a vintage train token, an antique vaseline glass African trade bead, and a wishbone for lucky travels.
This one features a vintage 1967 Fillipinas postage stamp of Santa Rosa de Lima. She has 2 vintage glass beads and a brass cross hanging down.
This last one is a vintage postage stamp of an orchid, also with 2 vintage glass beads. I made 10 necklaces- all very different, which I'll start listing this evening in my Etsy shop.
