Tiny Treasures

Tiny glass perfume bottle necklace with brass disk engraved number 52 and an antique master key with engraved lion on it.
Vintage Replique Glass Perfume Bottle Necklace.

Last month Fred and I spent a long weekend in one of our Favorite places, Rockport Massachusetts. We enjoyed perfect October weather, great seafood, tremendous views and Harborfest.

Among the many joys of Harborfest were the end of season Garage Sales.
I was lucky enough to find a handful of tiny Vintage perfume bottles that have since been turned into necklaces.
At the top of the page is a Replique by Raphael, Paris bottle circa 1961. I have combined it with an antique brass coat check disk with the number 35 and an old Master key with a lion on it. The bottle contains a secret message, a piece of amethyst, two Herkimer diamonds and the scent of Replique.

Travel to the Stars Perfume Bottle Necklace
The second tiny bottle was without its top so I carved a new one out of cork. The bottle contains a small scroll and tiny meteorite fragments. The bottle is adorned with a Master brand lion key and a game token of the Space Shuttle.

Dangerous Secrets Glass Perfume Bottle Necklace
This tall glass perfume bottle has a slightly mysterious attitude. In it you will find a secret message as well as a tiny rosary. Adorning it are a tiny lion key and a medal.

The FamiLee Jewels enjoy salvaging antique hardware and broken bits of vintage jewelry for our creations. It is our pleasure to reuse these beautiful pieces of the past. To see more of our jewelry in this style visit:
