Etoile reimagined vintage necklace by My Vintage Obsession
In stockCuber: My Vintage Obsession (Fitzroy)
A Sautoir necklace is a long chain or beaded necklace, often terminating in tassels or a pendant. This style was very popular in the 1920s.
This reimagined vintage sautoir features a wonderful Art Deco pot-metal button set with a beautiful emerald rhinestone star. Pot metal was commonly used until the 1940s to create settings for jewellery and decorative buttons. I have combined it with a vintage metal buckle made to imitate cut-steel, some repurposed textured chain, vintage emerald coloured beads and new cable chain.
This necklace is:
- ethically and sustainably made
- one of a kind
- made with vintage and repurposed materials from the 1930s-1960s
- 87 cm in the chain length (refer to my necklace guide for more information) with the pendant itself measuring 6.5 x 4.5 cm
Handmade in my Melbourne workshop, this necklace contains vintage repurposed materials. These hold some evidence of their former life in a deepened patina and minor wear; I think that is what gives them so much charm.
