Under the Umbrella with my Fella

under the umbrella
with her fella

a photo of my grandmother and grandfather
inspired me to create this one of a kind necklace

and yes that is an eyeball from a vintage doll
my grandmother had brown eyes so it totally suits this necklace

some religious medals
rhinestone baubles

and a vintage cut steel flowerette
along with an old key

a "g" typewriter key for grandparents
and a vintage watch parts vial filled with pearls

i constructed the necklace links from sterling wire
and hammered them for a rough finish

do you have any special family photos?

Rochelle, This necklace is absolutely gorgeous! Besides the soldered piece showing the picture of your grandparents, I love the cool details like the eye ball and the typewriter key.
