Silver plated stick pin measures 3 1/4" long. Lovely worn on a scarf; great way to hold it together. Pins are a perfect accessory to complete an outfit. All components are new except vintage bead.
Pressed beads, first heated on a mandrel (rod) in much the same way that lamp work beads are made today. A 'press' which almost resembled tongs used to cook with, was then wrapped around the molten glass to form the desired shape. Very detailed impressions were on the ends of these tongs that were used in these vintage Czech pressed glass beads so that the final bead looks 'etched' or 'carved'.
This European Art Glass jewelry collection combines antique, vintage and new glass in my original designs, available only at Tapestry Collectibles.
A note from Beth the artist - For over 25 years my art studies has taken me on different journeys. Many of my designs have been inspired by a life long passion of world travel. I love using Vintage and Antique glass collected from European travel, designing a new piece that reflects beauty and preserves glass as ORIGINALLY made; yet brings forth a new statement of my own.
Will make a FABULOUS gift for yourself or someone special in your life!!
