In addition to all of my other historical collections… sea glass, antique wax seals and colorful insulators… I have a very cool collection of little whimsical vintage charms, made back in the 50’s and 60’s in England. These tiny intricate sterling silver charms have moving parts or open to reveal some tiny secret… so very clever!
While each charm can be highlighted alone on a simple necklace chain or attached to a charm bracelet, I like to create a simple cluster necklace that tells a little story… a little vintage charm with one of my wax seal charms and a colorful gemstone bead.
A wonderful cluster of bees necklace… with a small bee “silent” wax seal charm, a little vintage beehive charm that opens to reveal a bee and a nugget of honey colored amber all threaded onto an 18 1/2” oxidized sterling silver hand crafted chain, made to resemble an old watch fob chain. http://www.etsy.com/listing/97707679/bee-wax-seal-beehive-and-amber-trio
