The vintage thimble I used for this necklace was from a set that I stumbled upon last summer. The sewing set was complete, but I lack sewing skills so I decided to use the thimble for this necklace instead. The pieces that hang from the thimble are black and cream silk cloths, vintage lace, and other antique pieces. The pendant, which measures 7.25'' long, hangs from a necklace made of two kinds of brass chains that close with a toggle clasp adorned with rhinestones. This item ships in a package ready for gifting.
