This piece began with the amazing length of pierced and gilded handmade 19th-century chain. The color of the chain is a greenish gold, old gold is so beautiful and more muted than modern gold. The carnelian gold capped pendant has little round dangles, they make the perfect complement to each other. Even the clasp is uniquely vintage.
I love using vintage findings, and am thrilled by the discovery of just the right clasp or hook for a piece. This line of jewelry showcases my 1st love, recycling.
