I finally managed in getting around to photographing some of my new designs for Fall. Today I am featuringsome of the new necklace designs that will be available for purchase at the various shows that I will be involved in staring in October. As mentioned before, there is some retro glamor in these new pieces, in which I have combined and re purposed vintage beads, chain and components with new beads and chains. In this first double strand necklace, I have combined a fabulous glitzy rhinestone clasp, with vintage blue glass "robins egg " beads, which were manufactured by the Swarovski bead company. These are mixed in with new faux pearls and sterling silver chain pieces, to give a somewhat reinvented look.

This next necklace, above, is made from brand new faceted glass beads with sterling chain, and I have incorporated some very pretty vintage ivory colored faux pearls into the mix. Down below is one that I am very excited about, that features a gorgeous brooch probably from the 50's-60's, that has a new life as a pendant on this vintage copper and brass chain. The chain needed some work and I replaced all the old jump rings with brand new ones. I love the warm colors of this piece! This necklace can be worn long, or doubled up as shown on the mannequin, for a shorter look.
This last necklace below, is in shades of teal, blue and purple. Once again, I took a beautiful, rhinestone clasp, and made it the focal of this necklace. Vintage flower shaped Swarovski crystals, adorn the neck line vintage, and new faux pearls, and dichroic glass beads, wired to modern sterling silver chains, cascade down the front. Tres elegant!
