Ooh, La La! Repurposed Paris Souvenir Necklace
This is a serious statement necklace. Only serious applicants need apply.
I used components from 4 DIFFERENT vintage, Paris souvenir bracelets! At the bottom is a repurposed souvenir brooch. It is lacy and lovely with Arc de Triomphe in the center. From the bottom of that I hung an Eiffel Tower link from a vintage souvenir Paris bracelet and from the bottom of that a vintage teardrop crystal drop and a tiny Swarovski drop.
All the links are wire-wrapped with sterling silver wire and a variety of special beads in both silver and gold tones, including faceted gemstone beads, pyrite nugget beads, sterling silver stardust beads (some encrusted with tiny CZ's!), sterling silver mirrored beads and more.
The 10 main links are from 4 different souvenir bracelets and include landmarks and hallmarks from all over Paris including Notre Dame, Sacre Couer, Le Louvre and more!
I hung a fob from the neck from one of the original bracelets that has "Tour Eiffel Paris" and a made-to-look vintage charm of the Arc de Triomphe. This necklace hangs down approx 9" before the pendant section, 12' with. Use photo as a guide as to where it will hang on you.
