Another Queenly Confection









Here is my necklace for my swap partner Melanie. This is for a vintage layered necklace swap on the Marie Antoinette Mail Art Site! I hope she loves it as much as I loved making it. It is is big and over the top, but that is how I live and work! The large picture doesn't do it justice, but the close ups give you a good idea. This is made of almost all vintage materials! The only things new are the bead leafs, flowers and other beaded pieces. The pink beads are pearlized vintage plastic from the 1950's. It is the only plastic used here. The metals are all silver with only a very occasional gold on some of the vintage jewelry pieces. The bottom drop is a chandelier crystal that is apprix,. 3 1/2 to 4 inches long total. The charm I made.
