One of a Kind Vintage Kuchi Centerpiece set off with loads of Swarovski crystal! This double strand necklace features a vintage Kuchi centerpiece that has been highlighted with Swarovski crystals in burgundy and smoke. The strands feature tribal style silver-tone beads and lots of Swarovski crystal beads and some gorgeous elongated fire polished smoky burgundy and purple beads. I'm loving how this came together and can see it with a nice dress blouse for the office or an evening out! The short strand is 17" long + 3" extender. The longer strand hangs about 2" below the top one. I will be posting several earring choices that will have the elongated beads. ;~D
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 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.
