Bib Collar Necklace
Bib Collar Necklace in black satin transforms with crochet accents. Crochet work gives the impression of a spider web while gold and crystal accent the front. The feature element is a large gold tone flower with rhinestone center. The back features crochet work as well with hanging flower buds. A cord attaches to the top edge serving as closure for the piece. Magnificent details.
The front hangs 6 3/4″ from neckline to bottom front edge. This width consistently follows around the collar with equal back neck hang.
About the collar:
Found in a box with other vintage trims, these pristine collars- I was told- once belonged to a seamstress. Too powerful and too beautiful to leave behind, these satin bibs have become perfect medium to present the power of recycle, repurpose & rediscover. The actual source of these collars is unknown. Possible dating to late 70s early 80s.
