Rectangular German ochre pressed glass has a brilliant design that gives the beads a lot of dimension; accented with antiqued gold plated and metallic glass beads. Vintage beads originated from circa 1930's German glass necklace. Photo does not fully capture exact color hue and beautiful detail; wait until you see up close. WOW!
Pierced earrings measure approx 1 1/2" long by 1/2" wide, on hypo-allergenic gold plated posts; can be changed to french ear wires or clip-on at no extra charge. All components are new except vintage beads.
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 West German 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and Antique glass collected from European travel, designing a new piece that reflects beauty and preserves glass as ORIGINALLY made, yet brings forth a new statement of my own.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!!
