The central focal of this very original designer steampunk style necklace is a Cat in leather with an elaborate minutely detailed breast plate. (More about this later). The antique brass of the frame is echoed in the flower filled, and flower links. Gorgeous amber, linked with antique copper wire, and copper chain complete the one of a kind, Victorian - Edwardian - Steampunk handmade design.
The amber is an environmentally sensitive use of tiny pieces of amber, heated and pressed to form these lovely, very light weight gemstone beads.
Now back to the shield on the breast plate. If you look very carefully on this miniature work of art you will find a number of beautiful, traditional animals. So far we have found a horse (or is it a Unicorn?), a mouse, and perhaps a dragon. The fun is in finding them for yourself.
The necklace is collar length at 13 - very popular in the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. The 5 inch antique copper extender chain gives you the options of wearing this at a 16 inch choker or even 18 inch princess length.
The Cat under Glass focal is approximately 1 3/8 inches in diameter. The central drop is approximately 3 inches long.
Because every computer monitor, pad and screen may be calibrated differently, the color you see may be slightly different.
