Vintaj Filigree & Glass Button Necklace

Working with Vintaj filigree can be a lot of fun. Brass is such a soft, malleable metal, that it really allows you to be super creative in manipulating it to your heart’s desire! In the video below,  I’ll show you how I used this large filigree as a wrap around a large Czech glass button to create a gorgeous pendant. If you have never used filigree in this way before, the video is a great introduction for you.

Since I really enjoy the look of Vintaj brass and gold together, I decided to use both finishes of chain to complete the necklace, attaching them with Vintaj jump rings onto different parts of the filigree, as you can see in the picture. I cut the gold chain into two pieces at 9” lengths per piece, and cut the Vintaj chain into 2 x 8 “ lengths, allowing the gold to drape just slightly lower. I thought this was a great opportunity to use one of TierraCast clasps with 2 loops.

Once you get familiar with using filigree in this way, the possibilities are endless.

Here are the materials used for this project:

1 x Vintaj Full Poppy Filigree

1 x 1-3/16″ Dragonfly Red w/ Gold Glass Button

1 x Clasp Set – Heirloom 2 Loop Antique Gold

8 x Vintaj Jump Ring 5.25mm

18” x Chain ~ Small Hammered Flat Cable Chain Antique Gold

16” x Vintaj Classic Cable Chain

Happy Creating!
