Victorian style nature theme meets industrial in this one-of-a-kind necklace.
It begins with a diamond shaped filigree, backed with a circular brass blank. Mounted on its centre front is a lovely hand glazed blue bird done in shades of sapphire, aqua, and pale cerulean. It is lightly rubbed back to allow bits of the underlying brass to show through giving it an aged appearance. Above and below the bird are layered vintage watch movement gears with clear diamantine crystals in their centres. Diagonally above and below the bird are silvery watch movement gears with watch movement rubies in their centres.
From the lower edges of the filigree diamond shaped base dangle both bronze and silver toned metal beads. The beads flank a drop setting atop which is affixed a vintage watch movement. The movement is embellished with additional gears on its surface. One of the gears is topped with an amber Swarovski crystal, one is topped with a vintage Jet AB cabochon – the tones in it match those in the bird – and the third gear embellishment has a watch movement ruby in its centre. The reverse side of this drop setting is backed with a circular brass blank for a nicely finished appearance.
The two-piece pendant measures 3 1/8" in length x 1 3/4" in width and is equipped with a 19" chain. The chain is bisected on each side by two short lengths of beaded chain for added visual interest.
