As I scour antique shops and flea markets for rare forgotten treasures, I keep keep a special eye out for antique ephemera. These rosy-cheeked and wonder-eyed little children are the darlings of my collection, often found on Victorian-era sewing machine, soap, and perfume advertisements. Through the years I've collected many of these lovely little ghosts. They brought to life again beneath these cabochon lenses.
This unique necklace features a surreal gallery of faces. Spooky. Sublime. Finished with stained and varnished wooden beads. The chain, settings, and findings are solid antique brass. The chain is roughly 16 inches long with a four inch extender so the fit can be adjusted between 16 and 20 inches.
