Nightingale, Repurposed Necklace with Freshwater Pearls

This necklace is the combination of several different pieces of jewelry. The focal is a new metal cameo made with vintage molds. Above is a piece that I rescued from a broken bracelet, the rhinestone leaves came from a broken necklace, and the hand wrapped pearls are new.The necklace measures 17" long with a back extender allowing the necklace to be adjusted up to 19". The pendant dangles 2.5" from necklace and the cameo measures a little over 1" by 3/4".
I often think about the history of my creations and only if they could talk the stories you could hear.
