Fancy Pants Santa

The Fancy Pants Santa Necklace is yet another to add to my list of my favorite things..... raindrops on roses, and whiskers on kittens, and the cookie cutters.   Many of you have heard me tell the story of how my cookie cutter necklaces began.  My great grandmother Ethel B., gifted me with her hoop skirt and cookie cutter collection.   And thus my cookie cutter necklaces began 30 years later when found them again.   I make the faces out of clay, fire, and hand paint, the collage the center of the cookie cutters with all my vintage jewelry finds, beads, etc.   This masterpiece happens to be set on  a copper chain and 3 hand strung layers of pearls, crystals, swarovski beads, vintage pearls, freshwater pearls, glass beads etc.  The vintage santa cookie cutter is filled with a santa with hand dyed velvet hat complete with rabbit fur band, vintage jewelry pieces and vintage buttons, more rabbit fur for the skirt and vintage german china doll legs.   More crystals and gemstones create the lower bead tassel.  The long chain is a mix of wired crystals and glass pearls measuring 43 inches and is a separate add on.  You can wear long or double in for more layers.    The main necklace is adjustable from 18 to 21 inches around the neck
