One of a Kind Vintage Assemblage "Fem" meets "Goth" Necklace by Romancing the Bling...

I love how this piece turned out!

Every once in a while I stray to the dark side of my creativity and I am moved to create in a Gothic Style...

I think she looks lovely in her created hand sewn frock!

During one of my flea market excusions, I purchased a vintage tattered piece of lace with hand sewn beading (held together with small safety pins). It was literally falling apart, but it was beautiful and I knew I it would bring inspiration to me. The spider and web are earrings and were also sewn to her gown. The back of her gown is also finished with a tulle bustle, distressed bow and a touch of bling.

Do you see the three tiny beaded bracelets gracefully dangling from her wrist...click on the images to enlarge the photos.

The necklace is composed of mostly vintage components...more vintage beaded lace with wrapped and sewn chaining, metal beads, a mix of Czech crystals, fresh water pearls, wire earring and a tiny 1920's rhinestone pot metal brooch for a touch of vintage bling.

I took these two photo's during the night using a flash. A bit spooky...don't ya think?

Visit my Etsy

I'm off to create another... (smile)

Have a lovely day!

Hi, sorry about the deleted comment, when I published it extra words had been added on, how very strange! Anyway, I was just telling you how amazing the necklace was, and that it was by far the best piece of Halloween jewellery that I have ever seen :)
