Re-purposed vintage artisan glass bead statement necklace

* I was immediately drawn to this unique necklace when I saw it at a local antique shop. It kind of reminds me of a Wendy Geller piece in how it uses a centerpiece collage of interesting items attached to a metal "collar". This centerpiece is made up of over a hundred glass and wood beads, glass crystals and stone chips in a variety of sizes, attached by bead pins to an interior string weaving. You can't really see the weaving because it is covered by the beads on both sides. The centerpiece is then attached in three places on both sides to a thick bronze collar. Attached to each side of the collar is a large glass crystal bead and bronze metal chain, with an extender chain and fish hook clasp.

* This fascinating necklace measures 17 1/2" long with an additional 4" extender. This is longer than a choker and will sit on or near your collarbone. Bead size ranges from 3/16" up to 1/2" in diameter.

* All of the elements of this necklace appear to be in excellent vintage condition. The glass beads and stone chips are free of chips and scratches and the colors are bright. The small wooden beads have a nice warm patina.

I just love the originality of this piece with its great mix of colors, textures and sizes. And I can't even begin to imagine how long it must have taken to make it! This great necklace will make any outfit more special and will be shipped in a gift box.
