What to Call This Style of Necklace?

Unique necklace made with pearls, crystals, wire, a recycled earring, and more. What should I call this style?

 

Rena,

I love creating this style of jewelry. The problem is I don’t know what style to call it.

I wonder if you can help. Have any ideas?

I love using pearls, crystals and pendants in most of my jewelry – and in this necklace I used a recycled earring for the center.

My first thought.
by: Joyce Pleijsier

I love this piece, and before I read your invitation to think about a name for the style: my first thought was: Baroque!
I copied from Wikipedia:”Baroque (pronounced /b??ro?k/ b?-rohk in American English or /b??r?k/ in British English) is an artistic style prevalent from the late 16th century to the early 18th century in Europe.[1] It is most often defined as “the dominant style of art in Europe between the Mannerist and Rococo eras, a style characterized by dynamic movement, overt emotion and self-confident rhetoric”.
I am curious about what other people think.

I Agree

When I saw your piece I thought to myself “Baroque” too. So that makes two of us, for whatever reason Baroque came into mind. No matter what you call this style, the necklace is an absolute knockout!

Love the Necklace!

21st Century Baroque? It has the opulence of baroque, but would never be mistaken for a Baroque Period piece of jewelry.

Absolutely Beautiful
by: Sheila

I always look at the jewelry and never feel compelled to comment – but this piece, OMG – it is so pretty! It is absolutely stunning! I am so impressed!

magnifique!

I’d call it “Retro chic” to get instant notice. It’s a subjective word which can describe an artform of the past which includes opulent texture & style. You did an amazing job on this piece…beautiful flow & elegant composition. I’d buy it in a hearbeat!
Thanks for sharing 🙂

The Duchess

it reminds me of Keira Knightly in the movie The Duchess. Sad film but her character was very classy like your necklace. (Two thumbs up)
