Jacqueline Brill Vintage Jewellery ~New Designer for D'Arcy Gallery

'Gold' metal pin with chains, pearls, crystals beads, buttons, mother of pearl disks and a tiny flamingo!

'My vibrant collections of vintage jewellery designs are handmade by reusing rejuvenating and recycling old trinkets, buttons, beads and charms wherever possible. The fascination for all things recycled started as a child, collecting sequins and sparkling crystal beads from ballroom dance floors in the 70's. As a teenager I bought old buttons, fabrics and even curtain pelmets to create my wardrobe, & have always added my own style to the things I buy and wear. I love finding forgotten and forlorn treaures that have a history, an untold story and breathing new life in to them to create a modern day heirloom.'

Tangled Chain Bracelet with Turquoise and Pearls. The chains weave and wind to form this wonderful mess! Some chains make it all the way round the bracelet, others just dangle off. The turquoise & pearls peep through the tangle.

Watches, Clocks and Keys! Not to mention one or two other bits & pieces. Pearls, beads, buttons - no bows (but I might be wrong about that), a tiny champagne glass, an Eiffel Tower (only a mini one!), a 1920's Murano Glass baubble - a collection of goodies to jangle and wear. The bracelet is surprisingly light considering everything Jacqueline has worked into this lovely creation!
