I’ve been picking up rings and badges for a while and when I found enough, I stuck them together with *white metal chain to make a necklace. There’s Paddington, a map of the Isle of Wight, two ping-pong bats, a British Rail staff badge and a lapel pin I went all the way to South Georgia to find. There’s something about the shapes and the colours which makes it incredibly cheerful but also very stylish.
The chain at the back has been made adjustable so it can either hang slightly lower (as Millie is wearing it) or up tight on the neck. £70, first come first served.
*Because a lot of my jewellery incorporates vintage pieces as well as precious metal, it cannot be hallmarked in the normal way. If there are several metals in a single piece and thus any potential for misidentification of those metals, then even if parts of it are made from silver, gold or platinum, it can only be stamped with a maker’s mark, not a full hallmark. So the chain on this necklace was bought as sterling silver wire from the suppliers, works like silver, looks like silver and is priced as silver, but must legally be described as *white metal.
