This is an original piece of art! Necklaces like these date from mid century when foil beading was at its height of design and quality in Europe. This stunning necklace features silver- and copper-foil glass Venetian/Murano beads with filigree caps, spaced with copper colored faceted crystal beads with an aurora borealis sparkle. There are also oval faux pearls with a rose/copper shading. While in the photographs some of the small faceted beads take on a gold-tone, they are copper toned. The gold shading is due to the camera light hitting the aurora borealis coating -- this piece shimmers and shines!! The longest strand measures 19 inches, and the shortest 15 inches. The S-hook clasp is original. The necklace is in excellent condition after all of these years. Unsigned. Absolutely gorgeous!!!
