It's a process; that I love to do...

Hand aged Madonna photo (front) is a lovely spiritual vision behind an assemblage of... vintage optical lense, hand oxidized round brass bezel accented by vintage rhinestones with a large hand patina sterling silver filigree butterfly, which has been securely soldered above. Dangling freely is a mix of hand oxidized SS cubic zironia cross and heart findings, faceted Thai 5mm ruby and medallion.
The back side of the pendant features an etched patina pocket watch finding with a hand oxidized brass cross. Vintage rhinestones and a brass filigree finding complete the pendant.
The necklace is a generous mix of wire wrapped 8mm and 5mm faceted Thai rubies, brass cz rondelles, vintage rose beads, champagne Czech crystals, vintage silvertone rosary beads with vintage chaining, oxidized cubic zironia stones set in sterling silver cross dangling down the back.

A true labor of love to create and is available for purchase in my Etsy Shop.


In creating this piece I was influenced by the beautiful women and jewelry of the Art Deco Era.

The Art Deco period originated in France at a time when women - who had been doing men's jobs while the men went off to war - began to express their new-found freedom...

This lovely lady has been hand enhanced by soft chalk pastels and German glass glitter and sits behind a silver soldered vintage optical lense. Her beauty further enhanced by soldered Art Deco rhinestone earrings and findings and securely affixed to an Art Deco marcasite finding. The back of the pendant has been finished with a reproduction antique silver filigree finding made from original molds of the early 1900's.
A generous mix of wire wrapped large faceted Ametriine (amethyst & citrine)bead capped stones, Czech crystals in deep purple, lavendar, saphire blue, light blue, champagne and faceted rock crystals. The closure has been hand made from a rhinestone vintage finding and securely hooks in place.

A statement piece and romantic decor...a wonderful gift as it is one of a kind!

Available for purchase in my
Etsy Shop.
