This pendant features a stunning French antique horse head button. This button was made by RL & F PARIS button makers and would have adorned the smart French men's riding jackets in the 1930's. Can you imagine wearing that same button, but as a statement necklace and pendant?
Do you struggle with your current necklace lengths during the colder months, when you were high neck sweaters? It's so hard to find the perfect length that works with sweaters.
This necklace is just crying out to be worn over a roll neck sweater and a jacket. It just oozes style and sophistication. I've made it long enough to fall just below the bust line with the silver tassel finishing just above the waistline.
For it's age, the button is in excellent condition and has been hand bezel set in solid Sterling silver. I have left the reverse side of the bezel open so that the button makers marque is visible. This is something I try to do with all my button jewellery designs, so that you can feel a real connection to the history of these beautiful pieces.
In keeping with the style of a flowing horse mane, I have added a lovely Sterling silver chain tassel to the bottom of the pendant. The necklace has been crafted using Swarovski crystal beads in black & clear and also have a toggle clasp made in Sterling silver.
You will never find another necklace like this. It really is a one of a kind.
As with all my pieces, I have used recycled, smelted Sterling Silver (925). The tassel is made from an old Sterling Silver chain I made many years ago and have repurposed. I try to ensure my jewelry is crafted using sustainable methods and recycling wherever and whenever possible.
