More Victorian Jewelry - Necklaces

So I still felt the Victorian vibe. This first necklace is very simple. It uses one of the antique optician's lenses that my husband bought for me.

Look at how beautiful the lens' holder is. I love the way people used to make the most prosaic items look beautiful.

I like how it lies; it looks very graceful. And everything except the clasp is reused.

Next I made this necklace.

You can see that I added a recycled chandelier crystal and vintage pearls. Can't you just see this on one of the ladies of Downton Abbey?

Here's a final look...

That is so me!
