TOUCAN


TOUCAN
Collar Necklace entirely beaded
Piece Unique


A tropical mood .....

I embroider the collar with glass beads from India , old stock from the 1980s/90s and vintage rosary beads from France ( the black and turquoise ) , dated 1930s .


Between the beads , my rustic wool and cotton embroidery .

DIMENSIONS :
Neck circumference 15 inch // 38 cm
From the front neckline to the bottom : 6.5 inch // 16,5 cm
From the back of the neck to the front bottom : 11.5 inch // 29 cm
Width : 8.5 inch  // 21 cm
Width medallion toucan : 5.25 inch // 13 cm


Closed on the neck by 2 magnetic snap fastener : a very easy to fix it .


This necklace is comfortable to wear : between the front and the lining , i use felt , to give its shape and thickness .
These 2 parts are hand-sewn together.
The lining is an up-cycled silk printed flowers . I used this same silk on the collar , but as it is totally covered by the beads , we don't recognize it !
The medallion with the toucan is a thick cotton printed : I added green colors with acrylic paint , where the turquoise rosary beads are hand-sewn .
