Glass Opal Sweater Clips in Silver Tone, 8.25", 18x13 Ovals, Retro by Roxy
I assembled these from new old stock sweater clips and 18x13 glass opals. I adore sweater clips and was so tickled to find vintage components because it meant I could create vintage style clips for everyone else as well!
Full length is 8.25", chain is 6 1/8
All stones are present and bright
Reborn by Roxy: I have collected costume jewelry since I was a teenager. Sometimes it comes to me with dead and missing stones. After a steep learning curve I decided to try and rescue these pieces and bring them back to their former glory. Often, I am not able to do an original restoration due to lack of vintage parts, hence Reborn by Roxy. These pieces will be clearly marked as reimagined vintage pieces. I will try to include before and after photos for reference.
Retro by Roxy: I am now working on creating my own original vintage style pieces from new and old components!
We are always happy to combine shipping!
HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR COSTUME JEWELRY: Keep in mind that perfumes and hair spray can damage your jewelry. If you do use either product give it ample time to dry before donning your jewels. Your jewelry should be washed in warm water with mild dish soap every 3-4 wearings. Dry with a soft cloth and allow to sit out for at least 24 hours to ensure it is completely dry before storing. I place mine in a sunny windowsill. Store your jewels flat and try to leave enough space that they do not touch each other. Storing in plastic bags is not recommended. Never use any cleaning product intended for fine jewelry on your costume pieces. The ammonia will damage the foil backing causing your rhinestones to darken. Likewise do not polish with any treated cloths as they can damage the finish.
IF YOU LOSE A STONE: Never fear, I am happy to replace stones for you. Simply contact me and include a photo of your piece. While I am not doing enameling and soldering jobs yet, there are still some basic repairs I am able to do, so please reach out.
