The HUGE art glass beads in this Turn of the 20th Century beaded necklace. One of the huge four beads has a substantial chip. That's why I am selling this for someone to recycle. There are also 2 smaller, round beadsand a "topaz" paste clasp. I am not figuring their value into this - they are your bonus. All of the art glass beads are spectacular. The large ones would be the focal piece on any hand made jewelry or beading project. The colors are light raspberry, orange and golden yellow - no two beads are exactly alike, as they were hand created. The colored glass is over silver metallic foil. The combination is gorgeous.
The necklace is 26" long. The clasp is in good working condition. The large beads are 1 & 1/2" long and are 3/8" are the widest point. The two round beads are 3/8". The clasp is signed "MADE IN CZECHOSLOVAKIA." The faceted black beads are 3/16".
If this doesn't sell, intact, I will break it up and offer the individual beads for a bit higher price. I would realize more profit by selling the parts separately, but I am hoping a creative Etsy member will be able to use all the parts.
