Flea market treasures

9 Mar

I wear this necklace I found at a flea market near my house often. It’s not Venetian, but from research, I’ve found out that filigree – the technique of the leaf pendant on the necklace – is a caneworking technique (that I spoke about here) developed in Venice as well. Wow, Venice spotted me at a church market sale before I even stepped foot on Murano island!

Just in case you were wondering, no, I didn’t buy it in the condition it is now. It’s been falling a part beautifully since October (most people seem to thinks it’s the style. I don’t mind). But If someone does happen to ask, I can always say that perhaps someone has the other half ;-).
