These beautiful beads are Venetian glass and date from the 1970's. They are a shade of green a bit lighter than emerald. There are 23 hand-decorated beads embellished with pink, green, blue, and gold enamel work. They alternate with smaller, striped green glass beads. There are brass trim pieces between each bead. The brass clasp is a screw-type and is original. This necklace is 24" long and is in excellent original condition.
