~Once Upon a Time~ 


This beautiful vintage repurposed necklace is elegant and has a nostalgic feel.  This piece was created with vintage repurposed items such as the watch face, tie tack, and large mother of pearl button.  I love using vintage items to make something new and unique.  I create a unique and one of a kind pendant using the vintage pieces along with new components.  The created this pendant using a gold tie tac and layered it on top of a timex gold watch face.  I then layered these pieces over a gold filigree piece and a vintage mother of pearl button.  I hand wire wrapped the Swarovski pearls with gold filled wire to make the necklace chain.  I named this piece "Once Upon a Time," because it has an elegant, nostalgic feel.  I hope you will feel beautiful wearing this one of a kind piece and it will bring you some fairy tale magic.

All jewelry pieces are handcrafted, unique, and every piece is slightly different since they are each created by hand.  I create each of the special bronze, silver, and copper centerpieces by hand.  Each bead is hand wire wrapped with care.  I hope you will enjoy this piece of jewelry as much as I enjoyed making it!
