Vintage Antiqued Silver Tone Exotic Bird Cabochon and Wood Earring and Necklace Set

 Sorry for the delay of a new post! Today I am sharing a new listing with you.
I welcome feedback about the photography itself. What do you prefer as a consumer? I am always attracted to the creation of a feel or style of a piece. For example, using period objects in the photograph as props. For all new listings I will be going basic black.
Let me know your thoughts.......


This nouveau bohemian trio features antiqued silver tone vintage exotic bird cabochons, impressive vintage filigree beads, vintage refashioned vintage stained wood and unusual chain and "holed" barrel shaped drops.

Each piece features the exotic bird cabochon which measures 5/8" x 7/8" (17x22mm).
The settings are also an aged silver tone achieved by a secret recipe hand patina.

Large vintage filigree beads (3/8"x5/8" or 10x18mm) add visual contrast and interest to each piece.

The earrings offer secure closure through silver tone lever back hooks and scallop detail.

I have yet to find similar hollow holed barrel beads used for the graduated dangles that hang from the vintage stained wood necklace pendant. Each bead measures 3/16"x3/4" or 5x18mm.
Each bead has varying patina and should be recognized as character rather than flaw.

The overall length of the earrings are 2" or 50mm.

The chain length is 22" (280mm) the pendant lays at 11" (140mm).
Pendant size including bead dangles is 4 1/2" (115mm)
