Vintage Kuchi Necklace with Indigo Glacier Blue Swarovski Crystal and Glass Beads - one of a kind!
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. I LOVE seeing the wear on these and often wonder how many women have worn them and where in this 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 Swarovski colors 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!
Swarovski Crystal flat-backs are applied with a tried and true adhesive that will maintain a flexible and very strong hold but may not be immersed or soaked in water. I’ve been making these pieces for about 5 years and get to see them throughout the years as I revisit festivals and their current owners bring them to me for visits. ;~D These 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.
