Vintage Bling Bling Necklace


printer friendly image


This center piece for this necklace is a vintage rhinestone brooch from the 1940s, is complemented with buttons and beads that have been stitched to a velvet base. Quite a show stopper!

The base of the necklace is a velvet ribbon that is ruched to create a ruffle. Silk cord is stitched to the center to give the necklace the tie and some stability.
