Art-Deco inspired necklaces using vintage pearls

Added May 29, 2010

I have done these necklaces using vintage pearls from 1920 and 1930. as they looked so precious to me, i tryed to figuer out, what design could look nice, using them.

the technique for the closure (that is under the two paysley shaped big leafs) is quite complicated, so i thought that the rest should look as pure and elegant as possible.

my personal favourit is the white one, but the green and the flashing blue one is really lovely as well.

hope you all like them. this is my last post before my holidays!………see you all in the end of june!

    Ralf, these are my favorites of the necklaces. I absolutely adore the white one, and the green is coming in as a close second. Any chance you’d work on commission? Happy holidays!!! Oh, to be European and get a full month off!
