Crown, vintage enameled jewelry element and a strand of vintage glass faux pearls are all used to create this necklace.  The silver toned filigree and sterling silver clasp are new elements.

A view of the full design.  Another one-of-a-kind design created for my Mimi-Torias Jewlery line.  I primarily recreate with found elements, vintage and a few new cool elements as well.

I am a jewelry designer by trade, a contributor by honor, and a fortunate member of this great JMS group.  Just sharing a few of my creative endeavors that I sell in the Midwest.  And just in case you are wondering, "yes", my brain is swimming with ideas and designs to create.  There are not enough hours in the days for me. lol

This necklace is sold as of 2/13/10.

Just a side note on this necklace. The vintage faux glass pearl chain has all been recreated with steriling silver newly created links and this one-of-a-kind white enamel connector truly is what I loved about creating this piece. Using a special find is such a joy and can really make a visual "pulling together" of items, if you will.
Enjoy!
Janis, Candy, Kathy, Laurel and whomever else is coming to the Minnesota event put on by Sue and friends, I can't wait to meet and see each one of you. I promise to have lots of fun one-of-a-kind jewlery treasures on display too.
