Michela Bruno Swafford is the founder and designer of MADE in the deep south jewelry. She created this line of jewelry with the idea of making one of a kind jewelry using vintage and antique pieces collected from all over the world. These pieces are then deconstructed and mixed with other pieces and materials to create new and unique jewelry. Every piece of MADE jewelry is one of a kind and comes with it's own biography ~ pretty cool! I love the fact that it's old but new, rugged but elegant.
I was excited (to say the least) when MADE said they wanted to send me a piece from their new line. I received the most exquisite necklace made from a 1940's chandelier crystal pendant on a 1970's chain mixed with at 1940's necklace. It changes color depending on what it's against so I can wear it with a multitude of things. I've layered it over other necklaces and worn it alone like I did in today's post.
