A Very Colorful Vintage Owl Necklace
Ooooh, one I am almost tempted to keep for myself! I found a really cool 1 3/4" round brass textured locket with a great owl face on it at an antique store recently (the shop owner did not have any info. on it's history or origin however); but she thought it was old stock. It was literally just strung on a piece of string. Not so appealing looking at that point. I envisioned how I wanted to transform it into a beautiful necklace and have finally finished. I actually love working with vintage broken jewelry and various elements as then there is no doubt that a very unique piece of jewelry will be the end result! This one is a long necklace measuring 26" around with a 3 1/2" drop at the bottom to show off the beautiful bunch of colorful beads. The beautiful blue crystal stones give the owl some eyes that really pop. I have used a rainbow assortment of wonderful handmade lamp work glass rectangle pillow beads with great highly iridized and faceted clear glass beads and wonderful textured brass beads for added sparkle and interest. Then I finished it off with an awesome golden leaf clasp. An extremely different and one-of-a-kind necklace. The round locket is shallow inside, but could certainly support a little photo or piece of paper with a treasure sentiment on it, etc. It fastens with two of those ultra strong magnets. If you wear earrings, I think this necklace should be the focal, so a nice simple pair of gold colored hoops would be perfect with it.
