Shabby Heart

in: Necklace



This pretty heart necklace is a combination of old and new in lovely whitewashed brass.  The vintage style pendant has a dancing cupid figure and lots of intricate  detail.  It's suspended from a layered brass filigree with a vintage Swarovski setting and a large glass pearl cabochon.  The pendant is finished with a tiny flourish of recycled sari ribbon.  I kept the necklace fairly simple -  the brass rolo chain has filigree connectors on each side with a small pearl and crystal charms.  All the brass findings and chain have been hand- painted with whitewash to give it an antique/vintage feel and to pull the components together.  This is such a lovely piece and drapes beautifully in the neckline.  The pendant is 3" tall, and the chain is 19".
