Vintage Kuchi Necklace with original glass gems and newly added freshwater pearls OOAK hand-knotted pearl necklace


Only 1 available

One of a Kind Freshwater Pearls and Jewel Tones! This necklace has a colorful square brass base with the original Red, Green, and Blue Glass Gems. I've fringed it with lots and lots of teensy genuine freshwater pearls. I then hand-knotted the pearl and red glass bead necklace with silk cord. I was really feeling a bit of a renaissance vibe while making this - and can imagine a queen from the middle ages wearing it!

Each one of my crystallized Kuchi pieces is a one of a kind creation. They start with swap-meet finds of vintage Kuchi pendants with their original glass gems. They are all absolutely unique and one of a kind. I LOVE seeing the wear on these and always wonder how many women have worn them and where in the world this particular piece has traveled.

After spending some time with the piece and thinking about the original gems it has and it’s own unique coloring (many of these are worn silver color with a golden wash, so look gold in some light and silver in other), I start playing with beads and colors - and in this case, freshwater pearls - that will compliment the original intention of the piece. I also have a big ole stash of Kuchi bits and pieces that I use if they fit. I want to honor the intention of the original maker and only want to enhance and revive these pieces to be a little more modern, and most importantly (to me!), sparkly!

These vintage Kuchi pieces are of unknown metal content and are not expected to be hypoallergenic. If you have trouble with metal sensitivities, the piece could be lined with fabric or shielded with clear nail polish.
