Description

This necklace is comprised of a variety of fancy, trail decorated, lamp worked glass beads of Venetian origin for trade in Africa. The beads are all likely 19th or early 20th century and show their ages in places, though these particular beads are truly in very good to excellent shape. There is slight chipping here and there and a soft patina on all the beads.

I love the beads as they are, and feel that they work well in the piece - but do look carefully as you may not share my aesthetic! Two plain yellow trade beads, a couple of pink whiteheart beads and some ostrich shell heishi beads complete the necklace which ends with a silver S clasp.

Spacers and clasp were all made to order in Bali in the early 90s. They are hand made and sterling silver.
