Huge Venetian Glass 6 layer Chevron Bead NecklaceAntique African Trade Beads, Unique One of a Kind Hand Crafted
Hand Crafted Tribal like necklace using one Huge Venetian Chevron Bead, genuine natural red coral, antique cobalt crow beads, brass and bone. This monstrous sized hand made glass Chevron bead is 6 layers from the early 1900's is from an uncirculated stock from Venice. It measures 1" long or 24x32mm and is very heavy and flanked by a cluster of orange red natural coral beads proceeded by a symphony of brass, bone and other beads from my collection of antique and vintage breads. Also feature here are several Venetian antique cobalt crow cylinder cane beads that have a faint white stripe. They are from an African trade bead collection and are not uniform in shape or size due to wear over several centuries. The necklace is 27.5" long and it is adjustable due to the large linked chain. It has a lobster claps closure. All of the beads are very old and strung and knotted recently by me using old beads from my personal collection of estate and antique trade beads. All of my creations are my own original designs using mostly components from salvaged beads, findings, chain from antique and estate jewelry.
