Large Green Gold Glass Pendant with Beaded Bail on Genuine Leather Rope Up-Cycled
Very Green Glass Pendant with Peyote Stitched Bail and Leather backing on a leather cord. I took a very large single vintage costume glass clip on earring by removing the clip and fashioned it into a stunningly beautiful and unique pendant. First by attaching a green leather backing and used green and gold seed beads to seal it up. Then I stitched up an attractive wide bail using a decorative peyote stitch of green and gold with bronze edging and a center design of gold and a pretty crystal. The pendant comes on a leather cord that has gold plated end caps and lobster clasp closure. It came out lovely. Light catches and sparkles from the silver lined green beads, gold Charlotte beads and they centered crystal. The 2 main large faceted beveled glass green stones are more subtle until the light catches and then "WOW.
I used the original gold tone bezel which has a raised floral design.
The condition is very good. The gold bezel is not as bright as it once was when new. There are a few inconsistencies in the beading due to the fact that not all of the vintage seed beads used are the same size. In any event it is handcrafted from vintage beads and findings.
The overall look is pleasing and I am sure you will be delighted with it.
The pendant is 2.25 x 1 1/8 inches. The drop length of the necklace is 13.5 inches.
