This is a necklace that I made using metal hearts from an old necklace. I took all of the hearts off of the old necklace. Then I took a vintage envelope that had beautiful writing and decoupaged each heart. When that was dry, I gave each heart a coat of Diamond Glaze. On the opposite side I decoupaged tissue thin pages from an old book to each heart. Next I took apart an old chain to get jump rings and attached one to each heart. A friend had given me a vintage Mardi Gras ball gown from the House of 'V' in Mobile, Alabama. The gown had the most beautiful trim ! I cut off the rhinestone drops from the gown and attached one to each heart. Then I attached all of the hearts to a vintage gold necklace , adding a new clasp.
The House of "V" ball gown dances once again ….around my neck !
