I bought these two necklaces several months back, they were both in need of some TLC. Both of them needed to be restrung, I have another necklace a Myra Ikora on another post, that necklace was on a Silver chain. I sent away to the UK for two thin silver chains, the brass spacer I had to buy from the States.
Yesterday the spacers came, so I finally got down to work. The White Ikora necklace was strung on a fishing line, I decided to only use seven Ikora beads with three brass spacer beads in between. The beads that are left I'll Make into a bracelet.
The most important of the two is the Myra Krytall beads, this was more or less straight forward, I put one spacer bead between the Krytall beads, this is a full necklace. To me it looks wonderful.
Bluboi has written a very interesting piece about these type of beads on my other Myra Ikora forum.
To cut a long story short, the Myra Kystall beads were the more difficult to produce, so are rarer to find, I think both necklaces were made in the 1930s?
I have put a before and after photo on.
Many thanks for looking
