Re-using vintage beads to make a stunning necklace.
You can do so much with vintage beads, especially if you have a lot of broken vintage jewellery lying about. For this project I decided to keep it simple and add vintage beads to an already stunning gold coloured necklace. This is a stunning one of a kind handmade re-purposed vintage beads added to a stunning modern day necklace. The necklace measures 20 inches the drop is an additional 2 inches.
So why buy vintage?
For me vintage means quality, it means it was made with care and attention that mass produced cannot match.
For me it means history. Whatever the item it has been pre loved, it has been pre cherished. It is a key to the past with every item having it’s own history and every vintage item particularly the older pieces have a beautiful romanticism about them, quite often we won’t know the history of each item, but it is easy to be swept away to past times .
For me it means individualism. Most items are one offs or limited finds. There are so many different styles and beautiful flourishes to vintage items that our modern mass produced items just cannot come close.
