Vintage Bicentennial Pendant Assemblage Necklace, Repurposed, Statement, Wearable Art, Patriotic USA, Red White Blue, Monuments, 4th of July
This assemblage necklace is handmade from repurposed vintage jewelry. My inspiration was the 2.25" pendant in the middle which is from a bicentennial necklace. There are several metal beads taken from a bracelet, such as the Statue of Liberty, the Washing Monument, the United State Capitol Building, the Liberty Bell, and a spinning gloab. It contains white and blue beads, and what were red earrings and pearl earrings. There are several layered chains in gold, bronze, and silver. The entire necklace evokes a patriotic theme. The neck opening measures 15.5" but can be adjusted smaller (if you need additional length, please let me know). The complete length of the necklace is 13.5" from clasp to the globe. A great amount of detail in making this necklace, which is truly a work of art. I collect, buy, and find whole, broken, and mismatched jewelry. I take it apart to suit my needs and create new and beautiful statement pieces. There will never be any two repurposed items that are exactly the same. Part of the proceeds from this sale will be used to purchase gifts for children in Celia's name at a local neighborhood family shelter. It is called Kensington Shelter in Brooklyn, NY Please Note: This type of jewelry is considered wearable art. The beads are made of various materials. Please take care not to drop or mistreat it, as it may break. Store it with care. It may combine vintage and new items. Vintage metals have a tendency to tarnish over time, but can be cleaned with a jewelry cloth.
