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.
The use of kitschy logos and prints in 50s revivalist fashion can be hard to pull off as the focus of any outfit, but including these designs can be easy with the use of the right accessories. These Day Of The Dead Earrings from Fred Flare are an ideal choice for lovers of psychobilly styles.
Using designs inspired by the Mexican Dia De Los Muertos, the skull and floral designs create a small piece that edgy kitsch that really makes the psychobilly and more extreme rockabilly aesthetics come to life. The studs come in a pack of three pairs to mix and match.
They're available now from Fred Flare for $16.
