Necklaced compact

I'm torn between utterly loving the reuse and redesign of vintage compacts to hang upon necklaces which in turn are often very art deco [and subsequently glamorous] in their nature. I'm spilt between thinking wow at the reuse and "oh my what have you done?!" Saying that it is an adorable use of a vintage compact and they just "fit" together so well, especially how it hangs off the bow.

Found on KariBeth's etsy page, they new life to vintage finds, from necklaces hung with pocket watches, keys and photograph frames to name but three. They really are a sweet vintage and charming delight.

Have a peek and see what you think!


  1. Oh my gosh, so pretty! Thanks 4 sharing x

  2. lovely. I've seen actually vintage compacts that were originally meant to be worn as necklaces or with wristlet chains so the compacts could be worn on the wrist and held in the hand whilst one was dancing. I think this is a neat extension of that.

    All look so beautifl, great share.

  10. The core of your writing whilst sounding reasonable

    originally, did not really sit well with me personally after some time.

    Somewhere throughout the paragraphs you were able to make me a believer but just for a short

    while. I nevertheless have a problem with your jumps in assumptions and

    one would do well to help fill in all those breaks.
