Autumn Leaf Necklace

Autumn Leaf Necklace
Only 1 available

This mixed metal pendant has a lot of textural interest as well as color.  It has a Victorian feel.  Perfect for Autumn, but I'd wear it year round.  I call it Autumn Portrait.

The pendant in this one of a kind statement necklace is composed of a wonderfully detailed vintage button made of wood and two tones of metal - silver and brass. I've attached this to a frame I've created from a vintage mourning buckle. After hand sawing and forging a copper leaf I hung it within the frame.

The copper and silver metal (not sterling) chain is vintage and the curved pieces of copper have a beautiful natural patina and shine.

The clasp I added for fun - a copper coated lobster clasp in the shape of a bird.

The chain is 23 inches long. The pendant is 3 5/8 inches long by 1 3/4 inches wide at the widest.

A treasured keepsake for tomorrow composed of elements of yesterday and today.

Note:  The earrings in the 4th photo are no longer available.

This piece was published in the Spring 2016 issue of Belle Armoire Jewelry!!  I will include a copy of this issue with purchase of this pendant.
