I knew when I saw this vintage double sided, butterfly and floral clutch shape pendant at an antique market, I had stumbled across something pretty special. And when I learned it was found in a 1920-1940's Singer sewing machine cabinet, I was sold!
After some research, I found out that this style of jewelry is called Cloisonné and it is stunningly intricate. When I got it home and cleaned up I couldn't stop looking at it and, every time I did, I noticed a new detail...the butterflies, scrolls, vibrant colors, the slight scalloped shape.
I put on an 18" gold plate chain with a gold plate infinity ring and handmade front closure. I have done some extensive searching on this type of jewelry and have yet to see one as uniquely shaped as this one. It is absolutely gorgeous.
I also found these beautiful leaf shaped Cloisonné earrings alongside the pendant. I removed the old ear wire, added a gold plate infinity ring and attached them to handmade brass ear wires.
