this is a special collaboration with a fellow artist, Jodi. She is an amazing mosaic artist, and a dear friend of mine. We occasionally, get together and create some very special, one-of-a-kind pieces. This one is one of the last from our last collaboration. We typically sell them only at art shows, but with no shows going on at the moment, I’ve added our two last ones in this series, here.
vintage brass cup with a beautiful mosaic made from teacups from my late mother’s tea cup collection
bronze heart charm
brass plated crown charm
brass plated links
18-34” brass plated chain + glass crystal chain (convertible, wear it long or short)
so, if you’ve ever gone to the eye doctor, you know what this is, right?! it’s a vintage optometrist lens that is now finding a second go-around in life. discarded, but rescued to repurpose into this fun necklace. I’ve added a few little mixed metal charm dangles too.
I was super excited to find these reproduction medals from WW1! an original would be way out of my reach, so to be able to bring you this high quality replica (the mold for this one is made from an original vintage medal) is thrilling. i think they’re so so cool! and to be able to wear it 4 different ways...bonus!
silver plated WWI Belgian Victory medal replica (reversible) recast from antique original
brass & Czech glass bead chain and silver plated chain
convertible from 18” (clasped) to 34” long necklace

this necklace features a vintage African money ring. I purchased the vintage money belt (the last photo shows the belt that this ring came from-circa 1920 Nigeria) that these rings were on...dismantled it, gave them all a bath and sealed them with a metal sealant so that they wouldn’t patina any further.
