Vintage East German trouser braces made from leather, brass and striped elastic form the basis of this adventurous choker. The pendant falling from the leather is made from the braces fastening, half a vintage French brass crocodile curtain fastener, a vintage metal chandelier bead connector, vintage mother of pearl rosary beads, time tarnished glass pearl beads, a recycled Indian metal flower link, tiny brassy beads and recycled brass toned chain. More Indian flower connectors are hand sewn to anchor the striped elastic. Vintage rosary and glass pearl beads attach two parts of the braces together while the clasps are vintage brass. Tailored with a steam punk attitude.
Measures 40cm in length from clasp. Although this piece is fashioned to sit on the collar bone, the elastic may be adjusted to add an extra 15cm.
