Choker of Venetian trade beads, vintage Czech beads and three new chevrons with Bali silver

This necklace, which I refer to as "that eyeball choker" ties a number of ages and localities together.

The oldest beads in this necklace are the striped 'watermelon' type chevron beads, made in Venice for trade in Africa. They likely date back to the 19th or early 20th century.

Next are the lacy white beads which came off of a too-damaged-to-repair-yet-stunning Miriam Haskell necklace from the 50's. The are Czech in origin and quite lovely.

White seed beads are European, traded in Africa.

Silver spacers and clasp are vintage hand made sterling beads from Bali (I purchased them there in the early 90's).

The large softly faceted beads at the center are contemporary Chinese chevron beads.
