A 1970 -1980's pendant necklace in gilt metal with green and cream plastic pieces. It has a very heavy snake chain. A lot of these sorts of necklaces were made but it is difficult to find stylish ones that would look good on any outfit. I try to have a selection in my shop at Vintage Modes, Grays Antiques in central London. Ref. 397A187/6. Price £65. www.gillianhorsup.com

This Art Deco necklace made by the Jacob Bengel factory in Germany is classical Art Deco. The brown galalith pieces are ridged. It is unused. If you need an Art Deco necklace to go with a l930's outfit - this could be it! These necklaces also look good with some of today's outfits. I always have a selection of Art Deco necklaces in my shop at Vintage Modes in Grays Antiques in central London. Ref. 406A188/3. Price £148. www.gillianhorsup.com

This lovely bracelet has 6 dark blue, press moulded pieces. It was most likely made in Bohemia. Often these pieces have cracked or damaged glass - but I was lucky to find this in quite good condition. The front is good. The back has some wear to the white metal plating. 4088A187/28. Price £88. www.gillianhorsup.com. I always have some Art Deco/Bohemian bracelets in my shop at Grays Antiques in central London.

I love Pavone's work - she creates new pieces out of old galalith (which is an early plastic). I particularly like this piece because of the humour and also because of the pieces of galalith which she has found - the blue swirly bits! It is absolutely brilliant. Ref. 404 A189/42. Price £58. www.gillianhorsup.com. It is in the shop at Grays Antiques, (Vintage Modes in The Mews) in Central London. I always have a good selection of Costume Jewellery.

At Vintage Modes we love all sorts of vintage costume jewellery - from the smart to the fun and everything inbetween! This is smart - it's a Givenchy set - necklace and bracelet in matt, gilt metal. It has a beaten appearance on the surface. It could be worn as a set or separately. It could be worn for a formal occassion or for shopping. It would look good anywhere! Anyway it's £148 - not the cheapest - but it is certainly versatile. Ref. 407A171/30. www.gillianhorsup.com.
