The somewhat heart shaped, brass filigree focal piece was actually an old clip earring that I took apart. The crystal key charm at the very bottom, is a modern Swarovski addition.
There is a fabulous vintage skeleton key that is suspended from a very old circular, metal filigree jewelry finding, which is rare old Mariam Haskell stock. I also added vintage chains and corrugated brass beads,
.............and some wonderful vintage uncirculated Swarovski crystals...both the more recognized faceted crystals, as well as the rare matte crystal beads.
Then I decided to design some earrings to go with this necklace.
Here is everything displayed together and ready for the auction.
I also designed another necklace for another fundraiser, and will feature that one next time! Pin It
