Elegant necklace made of chocolate brown and chalk-white vintage lucite disc beads from the 1950s.

A lady I know opened a shop in Boston in the 1950s where people could make their own earrings. She bought hundreds of lots of European and Japanese lucite beads, but over time decided they were no longer fashionable and put them in storage. She still runs a shop that sells supplies, and one of her young shop assistants found the stash of vintage lucite beads a few months ago - untouched since the 50s. She convinced the boss to put some out for sale. These beautiful chocolate brown and white discs are from that stash.

The discs are separated by tiny white beads, and small white rounds at the clasp. Rare beads, limited edition.

Think: solar eclipse; minimalist graphic design; mid-century Berlin; bold, retro fun.

Length: 23" or 19". Let me know which one you would like! I will make it to order. Although the beads are oversized, the necklace itself is extremely lightweight.



**Special notes**

Check to see if the length is what you want, perhaps by measuring a necklace you already have. Strung on 49-strand steel cord. Because of their size and shape, the beads are strung slightly loosely. This helps the piece hang correctly. The magnet in the clasp is quite strong, so take care with that if you have things that shouldn’t get too close to magnets.

SHIPPING: Shipping cost includes pretty packaging, postage, and tracking.

LIVE OUTSIDE THE US? I am happy to ship certain items internationally via USPS Priority. I have not listed all the shipping costs for countries I ship to, so please contact me for a shipping quote.

GIFTS: If you are purchasing a gift that is to be sent directly to the recipient, let me know at checkout. I will not include receipts or invoices. Jewelry is sent in a nifty white gift box with decorative tissue inside.

VINTAGE & HANDMADE: Many of the beads I use are 30-60 years old, and as such, have the patina of age, which is part of their charm.
