    Well I am hoping for some guidance on this find from my favourite thrift shop here in Sydney, Australia. I suppose it is the magpie in me that was attracted to these necklaces. But the medium is the message!

    They reminded me of my wood blocks as a kid.

    Are they pre- or post- WWII?

    'Wood turning' means Germany or Czech origin?

    I just like the Bauhaus look of it all!

    There are just three basic shapes - the creativity lies in the way they are threaded and decorated.

    Wooden Jewels!

    Unsolved Mystery

      Just great. Beautifullly turned and painted, and the almost random threading is a pattern!
      They have held up well - look almost new, no matter what their age.
      I would have grabbed them too! Rozelle?
    7. vetraio50 vetraio50, 7 years ago
      Nah, in Kingsford. I don't think they are new. Just looked after. The other necklace is even better!

      Thanks MANI ..... I think there was a period in the fifties when it was fashionable too to wear them.

      I have a collection of passementerie (not sure how to spell it). Some of them have wooden beads as decoration. They are well made and rich in colour, mostly orange, red, green, and dark blue. My collection goes back to the 1920's. I will post some picks when I get a chance. Some of your beads look newer but some are similar to mine:)

      Many thanks FREIHEIT, I would love to see them.
