SHIPPING UPDATE - I am not longer shipping whilst travel restrictions are in force in the UK. Whilst living an isolated life is normal for me and I have been extremely cautious about outside contact for many weeks now, it is not fair on Post Office workers to have to process my "non essential" orders during this time. Please feel free to browse and even continue to purchase if you wish, and I will update you on potential shipping dates going forward. Thank you for your understanding, wishing you health and please stay safe everyone!
A found object necklace featuring items useful to a dressmaker of the past and unique swan design glass button.
From my collection of vintage found items, I've put together a completely authentic assemblage of old objects in the theme of The Dressmaker. From a twisted sterling silver ring hangs part of an antique folding metal ruler with "20 and 2" on one side and number "4" on the other. Finding a metal version of a folding ruler is quite rare and the font of these numbers is particularly delightful.
The ruler sits alongside an antique thimble which is numbered "15" and I have fitted a labradorite and rainbow polished bead at the top with Czech glass beads to hang from inside it, looking like droplets of dew. To finish the piece, I've included a very unique find - a beautiful pink swan design glass button which has fabulous decorative molding and silver highlights. It's quite a rare object.
It hangs on a sterling silver chain in a length to suit you. For a handy guide to choosing the right necklace length for you, please visit https://thecreakingdoor.com/pages/useful-guide-to-necklace-lengths
