1950s Glass Bead Floral Necklace
This necklace is so special. Its a double strand of thick ropes of glass beads. The little flower heads are made of milky and clear purplish glass, most likely of Italian origin. They have "stems" of clear glass seed beads and there are some cut crystal beads here and there for even more sparkle. The clasp is gold tone metal, beaded as well. One strand is slightly shorter than the other, so it lays perfectly on the neck. The feel of the necklace is just wonderful, and it looks really wonderful when worn.
The shorter strand is 19", the other is about an inch and a half longer.
