This is one of the most interesting string of glass and brass beads I have ever seen. I think this string has been restrung. The glass and brass is in graduating size to small at the hook and loop closure to large at the bottom of the string. Look at the different shaped beads that make up this necklace. The glass beads go from one large round bead to tear shape glass beads small and large. The brass are of interesting wire wrapped to ribbed metal beads. This is a beautiful and exciting glass necklace.
