OOAK Upcycled Jewelry Assemblage Chunky Occasion Necklace

entitled

"A Fine Mess"
Details

This piece was created almost entirely from vintage necklaces and bracelets that have been connected together~ although there is symmetry in this piece, each side is a little different due to the fact that as well as there being several necklaces woven together, there are also several bracelets hooked together to stretch across so each side has a few different elements, but they're all similar. The color is neutral, with shiny and matte silver tones, different shades of offwhite simpearl beaded strands, and clear rhinestones~ there is also a tiny dash of gold tone but it's very minimal, which includes the dark weathered finish gold tone chain that makes up the back section that goes around the neck. ALL of the components are vintage preowned and do show age and wear, and even though there is a LOT of sparkle and shine going on here, it proudly shows off it's preloved patinas, so if you're looking for brand new and all shiny perfect, then you will not be happy with this piece. This is definitely for those of us who LOVE the look of weathered "Shabby" but still beautiful and sparkley! Some of the rhinestones are crystal so you will get flashes of very brilliant, combined with the glass and paste stones of the older components which give off a more toned down sparkle, so it's got great brilliance to it, without being "costumey" or over the top. There are some sterling silver beads, filigree beads, and sterling silver chain running through. See all of the pictures, in different lights, with close up pics to see all of the many pieces that make up this gorgeous and special jewelry concoction :)

The back chain connects with a lobster claw, and as shown in the pictures at the end of the chain, it will hang low, or it can be worn a few inches higher by connecting the clasp higher up the chain. Another nice quality about this necklace is that because it's a loose weave, you can move the individual pieces around a bit, turn them, pull them tighter/looser, and kind of fix them how you want them. Once you get it how you like it, it is pretty good about staying in place. You may have to adjust it every so often, to keep it just how you want it.

Many hours of work and love were put into this piece, to ensure that it was beautiful as well as wear-worthy~ this piece not only looks fabulous, but is well made using techniques to ensure quality and longevity. I have been making costumes and jewelry for over 20 years, and have learned a lot in that time about how to construct pieces to be long lasting and durable.

I guarantee all my work, and do repairs that may come up without any charge for the entire duration that you own the piece.
If you need to have a piece repaired within the 1st 6 months, we will also cover the cost of return shipping. After that, we do all repair or maintanance work for free, and the buyer only pays for postage. So rest assured that your piece will be taken care of, and that it has been constructed well. That said, my pieces ARE made from vintage and sometimes antique components. So you will want to take care when wearing, dry with clean towel quickly after exposure to water (ie. rain, etc), and store in a safe environment (FYI: cats LOVE to chew up feathers!!)
I have been offering this same guarantee on all my costumes and jewelry for over 10 years and rarely do I get anything back to fix, however, because I do use a lot of antique and vintage components, and some of them have considerable age on them, it can (and will) occasionally happen that something comes loose or a rhinestone falls out.

I hope you will enjoy wearing this fabulous piece as much as I have enjoyed creating it!!!

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

The inspiration for this piece came entirely from all the great old beaded bracelets and necklaces that I have in my collection that are just waiting for an "upgrade" to something modern that can showcase their vintage beauty without being dated and out of style. I love these woven "mess" necklaces because you can add so many different elements together and come up with something that is just spectacular and one of a kind.
