My Favourite Vintage Kinetic Necklace

I remember getting this necklace at a church bazaar in Cranbrook when I was about 8 years old.  I loved it instantly.  It reminded me of a card game we had where your goal was to get the right cards to build your creatures body.  There is four sides to this necklace, a mermaid, a body builder man, a raggedy anne type girl, and some sort of unusual ostrich. They are divided into 3 parts that all twist around so that you can mix up their bodies.  Hours of entertainment.  I would love to know more about this necklace but so far my queries have turned up no information.  If anyone knows anything about this necklace please let me know.  vintage kinetic necklaceImagevintage kinetic necklacevintage kinetic jewelryvintage kinetic necklace

  1. I have one as well, my father gave it to me when I was younger. I do not know where it came from but he told me that it was a sailor’s necklace. Mine looks identical except the chain for it is long gone. Mine is on a leather cord instead. It’s been in my possession since at least the mid-90s.

    Did you ever find anything about it? There are no artist marks that I can discern.

    • Hi Valerie,
      No I still haven’t found out anything about it. I’ve asked a lot of people and no one has ever seen one like it before. I would love to see a picture of yours! I love that there is another one out there! If you can email it to me info at pkkdesign dot com or post it to my facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pkkdesign that would be fantastic!

  2. OH MY WORLD I HAD THAT SAME NECKLACE YEARS AGO. MY MOM GAVE IT TO ME FOR A GIFT. I DON’T KNOW WHERE MINE IS.
    THANK YOU

    • Hi Crystal 🙂
      Thanks so much for visiting my jewellery story land! My apologies for the slow reply, I’ve been slowly getting back to business in the new year. I love hearing that other people owned this necklace as well! I still haven’t found out any details on who made them. If you ever dig yours up I would love to see a picture and share it on my blog.
      All the best,
      Patsy
