The Fleur-de-Lis French Lily necklace

This symbol, depicting a stylized lily or lotus flower, has many meanings. Traditionally, it has been used to represent French royalty, and in that sense it is said to signify perfection, light, and life. This golden color lily I found in t...he antique market. I suppose in its previous life it was used as a decor for some furniture. It has nice vintage look with signs of aging. It is attached to the bronze color chain and decorated with golden and green color beads.
This and more designs created by me you can find in GunaDesign

Avance Retard clockwork steampunk style pendant

I love steampunk style, but to create a nice original jewelry, I also need original vintage parts. And it means searching in thrift shops, on flee markets. For the main parts, I don't use any new supplies you can find on Internet. This steampunk pendant I made from the old vintage original Avance Retard (France) clockwork I have found on the antique market. The chain is made from nickle free metal rings in the Byzantine chainmaille wave. To have a female touch to this robust technological jewelry I added high quality light yellow frozen style Gütermann beads.
