Japan Marked Beads Scrumptious!! Light and Dark Green Lightweight Beads Necklace
$35.00 Gold tone caps, spacer beads and findings give a sophisticated style to this 2 strand, 24'' necklace. The beads are a wonderful mix of shapes and textures. I call these beads wasp nest material because it looks and feels like a fibrous wasp nest material and is very light weight... a dream to wear.. The main light weight green beads are separated by crystal a/b beads and in addition, the larger beads are cased by gold tone metal floret endcaps. Take a close look! The largest beads are around 20 mm..A simple gold tone hook closure can be set at any length to accommodate your preferred drop level. Excellent condition.
"A great deal of vintage Japanese costume jewelry is very well made, far better than most contemporary "fashion jewelry," with many pieces on par with Coro, Trifari, Lisner. Some of the designs are often mistaken for Miriam Haskell. In the past and in some circles, a low regard for Japan jewelry was due to the fact that after WWII labor in Japan was cheap, and so the jewelry was inexpensive and put out in large quantities. But we must realize that most of this jewelry is hand strung in such an array of designs that rarely are two Japan necklaces found exactly alike. In fact, many Coro bead necklaces of the 1940's and 1950's were actually imported from Japan, which may also be true for some of the Lisner bead necklaces. And why not? The artisans of Japan, as impoverished as they were at the time, were also highly talented. Japan faux peals are the best in the world; Miriam Haskell used them on her jewelry. Also, gorgeous lampwork and other hand painted art glass beads and crystals were used. All these, along with moonglow beads and hand painted plastics, acrylics with foil and aurora borealis coatings can be found in vintage jewelry marked Japan. The fabulous color & shape combinations are now highly sought after."
