My name is Violette Noble and I am an artist who loves to search far and wide for bits and baubles whose origins may not be fully known but are always antique, rare, eclectic or just plain odd.
I use these fantastic finds in all my jewelry designs and each piece is created by me and is entirely unique.
"The grapes in her vineyard were calling to her. She knew they were plump, succulent and ripe for the harvest.
She had always been charmed by autumn. She would gather the clusters of ripe and luscious fruit and enjoy its bounty all winter long. Freshly picked they added a deep, dark amethyst color and unmistakable flavor to the ambrosia that her family had come to expect each and every fall. Jams and jellies that made her childrens morning bread and butter a thing of beauty. Large, fat raisins, when combined with egg yolks, brown sugar, freshly ground spices and her homemade sour cream made the most heavenly pie imaginable. Wines and cordials that she shared only with the husband that she loved so dearly. It warmed the cockles of their hearts on those long, cold winter nights.
No matter what the coming year might bring she knew she could always count on the time when those lovely, luscious orbs from God would brighten the long winter ahead."
If you'd like to take a look at the actual piece on etsy just click below WITH a desciption following!
This amazing necklace began with an authentic antique child’s spoon with a vivid grape design stamped onto the handle and neck of the spoon. A “cluster” of vintage glass beads were mounted securely in the spoon since I filled it a little too full, they are dripping down out of the spoon.
The spoon was carefully drilled and a vintage chain with toggle clasp was added. The chain measures 23” long but can be adjusted to any length. The spoon itself measures 4” and the “dripping grapes” add another 2”.
The baubles were wire wrapped to add extra durability and each glass bead was strung with teensy tiny wheels from antique pocket watches.
This is truly a one of kind piece that will make your friends swoon when they see you wearing it.
Each and every piece in my jewelry line has been meticulously designed and created in such a way as to last for years to come.
All finery will arrive in a handsome be-ribboned gift box making it the perfect remembrance for friends and loved ones alike.
