Lisa de Bidaph passionately sources beautiful and rare vintage charms, fobs, chains and other ‘fine’ jewellery curios, reworking them into updated heirloom pieces.
This intricate and unique silver necklace has been created using a fusion of antique and vintage silver elements. The chains being Victorian Albertina watch chain and vintage 'Prince of Wales' link silver chain, together with several other fancy link chains in the bottom charm drops.
Coupled with a charm cluster drop incorporating the following vintage and preloved charms. This is a longer length '2 tier' necklace - (see approximate measurements below).
The vintage and preloved silver charms include:
- Extremely rare and usual 'articulated' (swivels on the podium) circus Show Pony charm.
- Highly collectable 'Circus Dog' vintage silver charm. The dog has a beautifully detailed ruffle around its neck, a clown hat and a pink enamelled tongue. Solid and weighty charm.
- Silver 'puffed' (hollow) star charm (pre-loved)
- To the side of the necklace at the collarbone area, is a short chain from which is suspended another circus pony charm with a lady standing on its back. Simply delightful and adds interest to the collarbone area.
The necklace is a longer length piece with a '2 tier' detail. The top tier being a stunning 'swag' of silver antique Albertina watch chain involving a combination of 3 individual strands of fancy link chains the centre strand having the ever popular star 'pierced' detail. The chains are anchored either end by decorative repousse work finials.
The necklace fastens to the right hand side of the collarbone by way of a nice chunky lobster style fastener.
This necklace is deliciously unique and collectable and sure to be a conversation starter - Roll Up! Roll Up!
