I designed this opalite glass bead necklace to be a long sautoir, as worn in the 20s and early 30s.
While we think of this period as the Art Deco era, styles were also influenced by the transition from the art nouveau and edwardian eras. Other influences were gothic revival and the finds archaeologists were making in Egypt. This necklace is styled in the triangular theme that was popular throughout this period. I used a vintage red brass filigree that has a copper look and formed it to fit over a large oval opalite glass stone for the pendant centerpiece. Dangling from this is an antique copper chain ending in a pendant of oval, 6-sided opalite. A pair of these lead up the chain from the centerpiece, and small round opalite beads and rondelles accent the chain.
Antique copper plated chain and findings are used throughout, with the necklace ending in a small hand-forged hook that fastens into any of the large links of the chain, or into the eye-pin loops of the bead stations so you can wear it shorter. The opalite glass beads in the necklace have a milky blue glow, sometimes look more clear, and often show golden or pink fire when the light hits them just right.

This necklace will be wonderful for adding a romantic, vintage vibe to your look. I can also see it working for a medieval or renaissance look.
I will be happy to shorten it to the length you like~
The necklace is shown in the fourth photo at a fastened length of 32 inches with an extension allowing it to be worn up to 35 inches (89cm).
The drop from the center is 4 inches long (10cm), measuring from the top of the filigree.
