Pardon the hyperbole, but this is the most original bead laden, non sterling, largest nouveau deco ish necklace this person has ever designed and assembled. Massive! Sometimes one sees a piece of 'hardware', as in this circa 1890 brass Art Nouveau escutcheon with butterfly figural motif, and the creative person knows instantly what to create. Wear this bold original to your next art fund raising event or movie premiere and declare that you support artist created jewelry by wearing this original creation. Not signed so not to mar the collectible integrity of the antique chest plate, but artist documentation with photo will accompany this piece.
6 different glass elements were employed: tortoise, etched, deco, ceramic, iridescent, fluted, black, celadon green, most if not all hand made beads for a total of 69. The individually metal threaded beads form a chevron shape design that will cover your chest for that stunning statement!
The antique escutcheon with keyhole is 4 3/4" wide X 1 3/4" north to south, and 1/16" thick.
The longest middle dangle has 9 stations for a total of 6".
The etched plated brass chain is 16 1/2" and includes a swivel clasp.
This weighs 6 ounces! Sure to become a collectible.
