Chinese red vase
I bought the sweet pendant in this necklace in a shop in New York and had it for years. I also had the tiny red beads. When they happened to be next to each other on my inspiration table it became clear what needed to happen. I wanted the result to be elegant and vintage Chinese looking. This is not a heavy piece but has all the drama.
Silver pendant from China, tiny vintage "white hearts" (red) beads. Vintage African trade beads.
