What a bead bonanza! Red and white trade beads called pigeon eggs, made in Bohemia late 1800′ to early 1900’s. Venetian millifiore beads from the same era, rock crystal antique faceted beads, old red beads from Nagaland, tiny, uncirculated till now, Venetian 1700’s white heart beads in green and red, sterling silver spacer bars and bead caps, all ending with sterling silver clasp. WOW! Super comfy to wear, what impact.
As with all my creations, this is a unique, individual, one off that took me hours and hours to get just right. I collect all my components by scrabbling in souks and hessian bags and dusty shops for the most unique treasures my dealers can part with. All my pieces have little dings, dents, and signs of wear from their global journeys and age, which add to their charm. You will be the new custodian of a piece of wearable art, that has its own story. Imagine if these beads could speak.
