This brilliant vintage necklace practically glows. It is composed of thousands of tiny hand made translucent Venetian art glass seed beads, perhaps produced as African trade beads. This piece definitely has a tribal/ethnic feel!
Because they vary in shape and shade, the necklace glistens with movement and has an amazing depth of color, best described as deep emerald green with a tiny hint of turquoise. Larger rectangular turquoise and green glass beads and tiny copper beads are interspersed. Side bars are highlighted with brass and iridescent white glass beads.
Imagine this intricate necklace draped across your decolletage accessorizing a strapless dress . Or make a statement accessorizing a tank top and shorts this summer!
The necklace has a wonderful, weighty feel. Shortest strand is 20” from one end of clasp to the other; longest strand is 32.” When draped around your neck, the drop from shortest to longest strand is about 6”.
Smallest beads are 1.5—2 mm in size
