I've got the music in me!

So did you guess what the focal piece is on this necklace?


It is a record adapter!

Remember, those little discs that you would insert into the large hole of a 45, so that you could play it on your stereo??  I used to have a lot of these but they were made of plastic. Well, this is a metal one. This brand is the first one made and marketed in the US. It was invented by Frank A. Jansen, the patent, #2585622, was applied for in 1949 and issued in 1952 then marketed by the Webster-Chicago Corporation. The reverse side reads “Patent Applied For".



The music beads are handmade out of old music sheets and then shellacked  with a high gloss finish. I also added some vintage  brass  beads and a few tiny Swarovskis for a little bit of bling! Pin It
