~*~* New Unique And Beautiful Pieces This Week From My Studios ~*~*

This truly unique necklace engolfs the history of Grand Rapids, Michigan. At the height of the furniture era there were several bustling hotels in the downtown area. One was called the Herkimer Hotel.
The hotel was built in 1895 and it is still named that today. The ladies of the day used to frequent the cafe and diner for delicious food and wine, which was owned by a woman related to Louis Campau. Although it is no longer a hotel, it is now apartments for Veterans who are disabled or out of of work. A remarkable way to reuse something and honor our veterns as well. The key I used in this piece is from room number 69 in the old hotel. I also used an edwardian style button made by the old La Mode button company circa 1900-1910. To complete the necklace there are antique milk white beads and arora borealis crystals all are from the late 1890's to 1900's. This is such a gorgeous piece and has remarkable history behind it as well. A true treasure for any history buff.

Necklace measures 22 inches.
Necklace is one of a kind.
