The beads on this necklace are all glass, with 3 lampwork glass apples as main accents. Each dangle is separately attached to an antique brass chain which has all soldered links for strength and security. I designed some pieces for a client using chile beads, one of her favorite things, and she has a friend who wondered if I ever made anything out of apples, so the idea of a fun food line was born, and I've been searching for cool food beads ever since. The necklace measures 16 inches and closes with an antique brass lobster clasp. Please see the earring section for matching apple earrings!
