Vintage Czech Glass Aqua camel colored Beads.
Necklace length – 28.5"; width – 0.3"
The Czech glass beads are re-purposed from an old piece I had gotten as a gift.
The individual beads were strung in an alternating pattern on cotton crochet thread and then crocheted into the necklace. It is soft to the touch and drapes easily.
When I make a piece of jewelry, I try, when possible, to use the beads I have to make a clasp. If I can't, I try to find beads that complement the piece. In that way the clasp enhances rather than detracts from the jewelry. Sometimes, I wear the clasp in front instead of hiding in back.
