For a show-stopping necklace that incorporates vintage materials but at the same time is absolutely of the moment, look no further than the handmade jewellery of Jennie Sharman-Cox.
Sharman-Cox scours flea markets for vintage fabrics, beads, faux pearls and original military regalia and reworks them into original pieces of jewellery. The Skull and Pearl Necklace is entirely hand-stitched and beaded. A backing of antique cream linen with a layered lace panel is topped with an original brass crown and a design of vintage faux-pearls and cream, gold and red seed beads. The resin skull gives a contemporary twist.
The necklace costs £199. Check out Jennie's Etsy Shop here.
