Steampunk Antiqued Brass and Silver Filigree Collage Industrial Neo-Victorian Repurposed Handmade Ooak Machinery Lace Necklace
This lovely bib necklace is lightweight and romantic, perfect for a comfortable evening look! In this piece, there are layers of filigree and gears, brass plates and tiny watch hands, both found and vintage salvage. By detail, this necklace has parts from all over the world, a piece of brass filigree from the dusty side alleyways of Amman, Jordan; a set of wee watch hands salvaged from a vintage watch sourced from territories in the former USSR; and a bright brass centerplate found in the salvaged collection of a retired Detroit machinist. *Chain is 16" with a 3.5" extender *Pendant is 2.5" x 1.5" *Handmade by KC in our smoke-free, pet-free homestead studio in Michigan. *This is a unique, one-of-a-kind piece that will never be reproduced. *To keep our handmade treasures in their best condition, we have cleaned, sealed & buffed them with Renaissance Wax.
