OOAK Upcycled Assemblage Boho Fringed Couture Bib Statement Necklace

Details

When my husband saw this finished piece, he said "Wow, how very 'Pat Benetar Love is a Battlefield 1980s'" so it was lovingly dubbed it the "Benetar Bib"

This necklace is SURE to get you lots of attention, and make that Boho WILD statement that you are going for. This one of a kind piece is truly a work of art, and you will NEVER EVER find another piece that is just like it. If you enjoy wearing pieces that are created by hand, and totally unique, with no chance of ever seeing another person wearing the same thing, and you have a wild and crazy streak about your fashion, particularly your accessorizing.... then THIS PIECE IS FOR YOU!!!!

Measures approx.15.75" around, and 13" long from the top of the centerpiece to end of fringes, and approx. 5.5" in width (at widest part of bib)

Many hours of work and love were put into this piece, to ensure that it was beautiful as well as wear-worthy~ this piece not only looks fabulous, but is well made using techniques to ensure quality and longevity.
Any repair work that is needed within the first 6 months (which I take steps to prevent that from happening, but .... S*&t happens sometimes!!) is totally free, including return shipping. So rest assured that your piece will be taken care of, and that it has been constructed well. That said, my pieces ARE made from vintage and sometimes antique components. So you will want to take care when wearing, dry with clean towel quickly after exposure to water (ie. rain, etc), and store in a safe environment (FYI: cats LOVE to chew up feathers!!)
I hope you will enjoy wearing this fabulous piece as much as I have enjoyed creating it!!!

Domestic Shipping is FREE~ Only $1-2 for additional jewelry items shipped to Canada and other worldwide destinations. If the items are 1 oz or under, then additional items ship for free. SHIPPING IS USPS PRIORITY with tracking and insurance.

NOTE about my preowned jewelry: I wipe down all surfaces that come in contact with skin with rubbing alcohol prior to shipping, and then place them in ziplock baggies, to make sure that the items are sterile and safe to wear when you get them.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

I never have a very pretentious story behind where I get the ideas for my pieces. I don't dream of angels and have visions that I am trying to recreate in some artsy symbolic way. I'm a more hands on, in the moment kind of artist. I like to collect a very wide variety of jewelry, broken jewelry, jewelry parts and pieces, feathers, fabrics, found objects, anything and everything that I like the look and/or feel of. And when I want to create something, I simply pick something up or choose something from my collection that I want to work with, and kind of let that piece or pieces tell me what it wants to have put with it... or I just put with it things I think look good with it. And once the piece gets started, it kind of goes in the direction that it wants to, and I just follow along and ride the wave... never really knowing exactly what I'm going to end up with, when I'm starting out. At some point early in the process, a vision begins to form of where the piece is going, and at that point, I begin to go in search of the parts and components that I need to create and finish the look.

This particularly piece began with a Monet contemporary brooch. And I love Monet, but this brooch just seemed boring to me, just a solid ribbon of silvertone metal. But it had this very cool shape to it, and I wanted to utilize that. Of course, being a modernist design, I knew the piece would have to have a very upbeat style. I first painted the brooch with blue enamel paint. Then we drilled holes in the brooch, to add connector rings to. I then chose a chain necklace that would be the sides of the new piece, and used it's clasp. Once that was done, I had the idea to play up the blue with a bunch of different colors. And I had a whole bunch of fabric scraps of hand dyed meshes and fishnets that really looked great with this color of blue. And I envisioned a fringy bohemian gyspy type of bib, that was braided/woven at the top, where I could attach a scattering of beads and charms, to bring out the silver of the brooch. And the piece really finished itself at that point, telling me what it needed to make it bohorific!!!
