Citrus Blossoms - Vintage Enamel Flower Necklace
I love flowers, whether they’re in the garden, in a photograph, in a painting or in my latest reclaimed vintage jewelry creation. Nowhere is that more obvious than in my Citrus Blossoms vintage enamel flower statement necklace. She is alive with a full range of citrus colors that include lime, lemon, grapefruit, orange, tangerine and clementine -- all in bloom and ready to wake up your day whenever you look upon her! I’ve included a total of 11 vintage enamel flowers in this creation, including seven vintage brooches (6 with enamel flowers and 1 with plastic flower and enamel leaves) and four enamel flower earrings. I deconstructed them all by removing their backs and filing them smooth. I then hand-wired each piece to a solid brass bib and covered everything with a hand sewn padded cotton cover that ensures a comfortable fit. No glue was used in the assemblage of this necklace so it is super sturdy as well as beautiful! The chain is hand-made from beads harvested from any number of vintage necklaces, silver plated bead caps and silver plated spacers. It is finished with a hand made hook and my sterling silver signature charm. The flower bib measures 6 x 5 inches (at its widest) and the chain is fully adjustable from 18 to 22 inches.
The components of this beauty range from fifty to seventy years old; they are in very good condition for their age but a few minor chips, scratches, fading or other surface blemishes may exist. Like their human counterparts, these minor flaws and variations makes them, in my opinion, all the more beautiful. Please do inspect the pictures as I always attempt to show both the shabby and the chic of every design I create. If you value items with both age and timeless beauty which have lived a previous life, my jewelry is perfect for you, despite any minor flaws it may have. Lay-away (installment payments of $40 or more) is available on this beauty; please convo me first to reserve the item and arrange a payment schedule. This original, one of a kind item will be beautifully gift boxed* ready for gift-giving or storage.
