Hello friends, it may not look it (as I write, its snowing yet again!) but spring is upon us! What better time than now to refresh our jewelry wardrobe? With that in mind, I’d like to share some new pieces that’s sure to brighten up your spring wardrobe!
This first one is in a cool palette of sky blue and pale pink. The focal bead is very special. It’s a big Murano bead with hand painted gold, pink and white trailings. It dates back to the 60s. This necklace is a long sautoir style one and comes with a matching pair of earrings.
This second necklace features two beautiful elbow shaped Venetian trade beads from the late 1800s. Elbow shaped beads are difficult to find in good condition and these two are in near mint condition. It features a red and yellow checkerboard pattern and to break it up a little, I decided to put a big vintage red and gold French pate de verre focal bead. This necklace sits higher up on the neck so its perfect for those button down shirts.
If you prefer to add a bit of whimsy to your wardrobe , then this next one is just the thing to wear. It features a delightful vintage dragonfly charm from the 40s and vintage green and brown glass beads from the 50s.
And for all those upcoming weddings and parties, here is my version of the festoon style necklace. It features a gorgeous filigree charm from the 40s and the little dangling glass pearls are from the late 40s as well.
Did you notice that two of these necklaces have matching earrings? I quite like making matched sets when I can!
