Angles & Bones Necklace; mixed metal breast plate
I salvaged these vintage bone beads from a warehouse in New York that imported them from India (hand made in India) in the 1970s.
Lengths of stiff wire has been loaded up with these vintage bone beads, then geometric silver-tone and gunmetal glass beads are added to the bottom for a more modern vibe.
Triple wires meet in the middle and loop to each other, reminiscent of a tribal breast plate.
5 links of vintage brass elongated chain is featured on either side. I have very few pieces left of this chain - it's got such a lovely, hammered texture.
Modern "antiqued" silver tone chain finishes it off - with total length of 20" and an additional 2" extender chain to play with.
Bold and fun for summer - and rock it well into the fall.
