This wonderful 'fine' jewellery piece has been created using a fusion of silver antique and vintage chains.
The trophy piece being the handsome silver 'Peacock' (previously a brooch), embellished with twinkly marcasite stones. The peacock has pretty textural feather and wing detail incorporating open work to define, along with twinkly marcasite encrusted body of the bird are pleasing details.
The necklace fastens centrally to the front by way of an Albert swivel fastener.
The peacock piece is close coupled with the centre ring, together with an antique French silver and mulberry coloured stone in the shape of an acorn or berry (this charm was previously a button, yes really) The silver cap to the berry has tiny engraving 'AP&C : Paris' (the makers mark of the original button maker). Accompanying these 2 is a simple silver chain drop from which I have suspended a vintage silver T bar finial, which 'grounds' the whole ensamble nicely.
A pretty and quirky necklace to 'preen' over.
Overall length of necklace including drop: 23.5 inches
Neck Section: 17 inches
Drop Section: 8cm
Peacock: 5.5cm x 2cm
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!
