vintage reimagined aqua verdigris brass bar pin multi-chain drape

Details

My friend Susan was a talented jewelry artist in the 1970's through 1990's. She sold her work in boutiques and at craft fairs, and designed many of her own components. When Susan died, I inherited a large painted tin of her jewelry findings.

The bar pin was part of Susan's collection. Gold-tone plate over pewter, it's 2-1/8" (54mm) wide and 5/8" (15mm) high. Scrolling vines and floral patterns are reminiscent of Victorian style vintage jewelry which Susan so loved.

I hand-rubbed aqua verdigris gilders paste over the high points of the relief to give it a rustic shabby chic look. I then applied sealant over the entire front of the pin.

Faceted spring green glass dangles from the seven stations. The smaller beads are 6mm translucent sea green. The larger bead is 8x12mm with an AB (Aurora Borealis) finish.

Six gold-tone chains drape in a graceful arced semi-circle below the glass beads. From top to bottom, this romantic pin is 2-3/8" (6cm) long.

I am honored and privileged to re-imagine Susan's creations! I know she'd be happy that her designs have found a new life.

This limited-edition brooch is the perfect compliment for shabby chic, Bohemian chic, Victorian and vintage inspired styles. The last picture shows the back view.

The earrings are even prettier in person than on the web. I've gotten lots of compliments about them.
