vintage jet glass bar pin
I have amassed a collection of vintage jewelry in different states of repair. It is way past time I started using them or begin to find them new homes with other who will. Today I am showing off a repurposed assemblage necklace featuring a vintage jet glass bar pin, religious medal with prayer on back and vintage rhinestone bits and pieces. It is mounted on a choker created with layers of up-cycled hand dyed sari silk ribbon. I like to try and maintain the usability of vintage jewelry by leaving pin backs and existing elements. In this case all the chains are looped through the stick bar and alternately through the silk. This way, if wanted, the pin can be removed and reused.
