This necklace is made of antique blue Prosser beads. Beads are strung on fine chain that is strong and durable. I used vintage (1950s) handmade glass pearls in rice-shape that were made in Japan. Blue round flat beads that have facets and are in the center of flower motifs are Czechoslovakian nailhead beads that were used in garment industry. Sparkly red Swarovski crystals are scattered all over the jewelry. Oval blue glass cabochons imitating lapis lazuli stone are also handmade in Czech. I also used new beads and metal filigree components. Finished off with lobster clasp and chain that allows adjustments in length.
The beads used in this lariat were made in France. Probably between 1910-1940, but the company of Bapterosses started to produce beads already in 1860s. These are sometimes referred as trade beads for majority of them was produced for African market. Or porcelain beads for it's shiny look that comes from unique process of making.
*60cm (24 inches) long. Extender chain allows to add up to 5cm.
*centerpiece is almost 14cm (5 1/2 inches) long.
