double strand necklace of vintage Roman glass, turquoise howlite nuggets, magnesite, Greek ceramic washers, paper beads, hand hammered copper clasp, longest strand is about 25 inches; comes to you in a pretty burlap bag

Roman period glass fragments come from the middle east and date as far back as 100 BC. The very basic tools and techniques used in cutting the beads give them a great rustic look and feel. Some have acquired a beautiful iridescent patina resulting from being buried in the earth for centuries. Each piece of Roman glass is truly unique

You are purchasing a one of a kind handmade item that may be more delicate than mass produced jewelry; please treat it gently and with reasonable care.
I use jewelers grade sealers on patinas and surface treatments to protect them and your skin. Paper bead components also have at least 2 coats of polycrylic sealer and are quite water resistant but not water proof. Do not shower or swim in your jewelry.
♥ Process:
My paper beads are made from paper I paint by hand or digitally design to create certain patterns and color combinations; the papers are cut into strips and rolled into beads; they are sealed with at least two coats of either matte or shiny polycrylic and are extremely durable and quite water resistant (but as with all mixed media jewelry you are advised not to shower or swim in it).
Care for your paper jewelry gently as you would any other jewelry.
