The glass photo cabochon is a vintage photograph of a young gypsy. This necklace tells a lot about my personality. An explosion of colours and textures! I used multicoloured soutache cord, lace and fibers, turquoise sequins and beautiful patina Czech glass beads. There is a verdigris patina fairy hanging at the bottom, a handmade glazed ceramic component (from Spain) and a gold coloured antique button found in my grandmother's stash. The front collar is printed leather with an ornate flowery design.
It is sparkly, bold and fun! One of my favourite pieces so far.

The front measures 6 1/2″ (165mm) including the drop and a maximum 2 5/8″ (66mm) in width. It hangs on a row of glass and gemstone beads approximately 15 3/4"(400mm) in length and it's about 2 1/2"(65mm) adjustable. It weighs 66g.

I do not know the exact chemical composition of my supplies and I do not take responsibility for any allergies or bad reactions on skin. I will however answer honestly and to the best of my knowledge any questions or concerns you might have, so please ask before purchasing. If I write "non-toxic" or "lead-free" is because the supplier mentioned it in their description. I do not take responsibility for their information.

|Care & Maintenance||
Do not let perfume or cosmetics come in direct contact with the beads and components. While I choose my material carefully and I try to provide the best quality, if not properly taken care of, all beads will change or lose colour or shine in time if exposed to chemicals.
Handle the fragile components with care especially the clasp area. Be gentle! Because I use lots of fragile components made of clay or porcelain, I advise to keep the jewellery in their own boxes out of harm's way. I do consider repairs, but subject to certain conditions.
