The Product: Statement green necklace with vintage embroidery
This statement green necklace is one of a selection of handmade jewellery finds we sourced from a brilliant creative at an antiques & vintage fair in beautiful Ljubljana, the Slovenian capital. We love its heritage textile element, striking colour combination and elegant, simple form.
This collection of jewellery was handmade from vintage, embroidered textile remnants, each unearthed by the jewellery maker from across her Slovenian homeland. Slovenia is well known for its embroidered-textile heritage. Such patterns recall the European Folk style. The look encompasses the historic and decorative paintings that embellish the interior and exterior of buildings as well as embroidery and stitching adorning traditional folk costumes throughout the European continent and particularly, Central & Eastern Europe. Indeed we’ve devoted an entire board to this endlessly pretty aesthetic. Hop across to our Pinterest page here for more interior & pattern inspiration…
How to style your statement green necklace?
Although this statement green necklace has Folk and Bohemian vibes, its silhouette feels quite modern. I’d juxtapose the rustic, handmade styling with a structural, directional shirt, suit or dress for daytime workwear. However, the necklace would work equally well with cosy, plain knits and casual weekend wear. For more destination-inspired jewellery designs, head to our globally-inspired Jewellery page here.
The beaded necklace can be adjusted to your desired length by sliding a single bead up and down the ribbon. At its longest, the necklace measures approximately 49cm from the fastening to the very bottom of the necklace and 37cm at its shortest. The necklace measures approximately 6cm in width.
