UPcycle Design Bib Necklace Set combines turquoise, coral and pearls.
UPlifting. UPdated. The choice is now UP to you!
UPcycle Design Bib Necklace set stands out with bright colors. A show stopper!
The pure drama of the piece comes from its history. The original turquoise colored and coral colored beads originated from a 60s Geoffrey Beene butterfly dress. In 2006 they were salvaged and saved.
Two UPcyclers took on the challenge of creating a new necklace. The first crocheted a mesh collar and bracelet. She added pearls to the necklace and bracelet. The second UPcycler took it to this design. Continuing the mesh work, she expanded the bib to reach 4 1/2″ long. With impeccable bead work, she brings this to its current evolution. Pieces of real turquoise, pearls, amber, crystal, tiger eye and other semi-precious stones finish the work.
Flat the necklace measures 17″ around. The bib is 4 1/2″ deep and 7″ wide.
The bracelet measures 8″ long and 1″ wide. Vintage clasp.
The earrings drop 1 1/4″. Wires.
