'A Foxes Tale'
This precious necklace has been created using an eclectic mix of antique and vintage chains being both silver and 9ct rose gold vermeil: coupled with antique and vintage charms and curios creating an intoxicating mix of precious metals.
The chains I have used are a fusion of French antique silver with 9ct gold vermeil centre detail with interesting interlocking links, blending into antique silver watch chain and a short section of chunky vintage silver belcher link chain. The necklace fastens centrally to the front by way of an Albert swivel fastener.
The centre charm cluster 'drop' is a section of antique silver Albertina watch chain with 'foxtail' link. The intricate little chain has a fine antique patina to it. Suspended from which hangs a gorgeous rich 9ct gold vintage fob/seal with nicely detailed fox 'slinking' on the top (looking like he is on a hill), the botton of the fob/seal is set with a Carnelian stone. I have included in the design a 9ct gold jump ring along the length of the foxtail chain (2nd ring up from fob); just to tie everything together nicely.
Keeping the fox fob company is a sweet silver gilt filigree ball charm and a Victorian rose gold heart which is set with a tiny green stone (possibly Agate).
A really scrumptious combination with beautifully crafted and patinad antique elements, which of course adds to the charm and character of the necklace.
Charms and Curios include:
- Vintage 9ct gold and Carnelian Fox Fob Seal
- Antique Victorian 9ct Rose Gold Heart set with Green (Agate) centre stone
- Vintage Silver Gilt Filigree Ball Charm

Wear when you're feeling foxy, wear eclectically.
This is a quirky one-of-a-kind heirloom piece, bringing the wearer an item of jewellery as exclusive and individual as them. The perfect keepsake or gift to celebrate life's milestone occasions or just life!

Be Gentle with Me...........
Please treat your vintage necklace with the care and respect deserving of its age. Rub gently with a soft silver polishing cloth periodically to keep its vibrancy. Please do not bathe in your vintage jewellery. Avoid dropping on hard surfaces. Enjoy!
