This beautiful and colorful necklace is an assemblage of antiqued brass  chain, vintage milk glass bead chain, and vintage blue glass bead chain.  Hanging from the chain is a wonderful collection of vintage trinkets, a  cherry red glass bead cluster, vintage flag pin back, and a brass  anchor charm. The chain measures 15 and the charms hang 3 off the  chains.
Happy 4th of July Everyone!

Happy 4th!
