Here is a necklace made with Italian glass beads. They are flat rather than round, each one measuring 1/2" x 3/8". Since they are are individually hand done there is slight variation in shape and size. They are not completely smooth as there are indentations where different pieces have been fused together to form the bead. The beads have two tone blue backgrounds and red hearts surrounded by white. They are all hand knotted in between. The closure is a barrel clasp. The length is 17". Very nice condition.
