I am in love with this necklace. Honestly, the photos don't do it justice.
The wonderful vintage necklace (possibly Czech) is made up of wonderful glass strawberries and leaves and strung throughout with aurora borealis beads and tiny red spacer beads. The strawberries are in a vibrant red and a deeper red, realistically capturing the variations in a strawberry bed. The quality of each piece is exceptional. The strawberry portion of the necklace spans 8", and the clusters measure about an 1". The quality of the faceted AB stones is great, and the vibrant tiny spacers in red pull the whole piece together. The spring clasp and the findings have taken on a deep patina from age (I assume they were gold filled but are darker now).
I've seen similar necklaces with a cherries theme (although not with the AB and red spacers), but not as well done, and I haven't seen vintage strawberry pieces.
