    I have this necklace that I wonder about. I don´t know what kind of beads it is or where it´s from. I belive it is glassbeads. It's quite heavy. I'm certain it's not plastic. The beads almost looks like pools of light. They magnify a bit. They are shimmering in a blue/purple color. I have never come across this sort of necklace before.

    You can not see all threw the bead when it's laying on a surface, only when you hold it to the light.
    Length: 21 cm
    Weight: 73 grams
    Beads are 1 cm
    Boxclasp of brass, spirals on the end of the side of the clasp, small glassbeads or stones in the clasp.
    Knots between beads.

    All information I can get is helpfull, thanks!

    9. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 5 years ago
      Bladerunner thankyou for coment and love. These are not lucite though, it's glass or stone. Most likely glass.

      Thankyou kyratango! I will look into it. :)

      Hi Elisabethan, my first reaction when I saw your beads, like Kyra has said, they could be Ikora beads. They have a pearl glow about them. The clasp is all wrong but somebody could have changed the chain and clasp.
    11. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 5 years ago
      Hello peasejean thankyou for attention :). Ikora is new to me. I have tryed to read today what I've found online but that's not always trustworthy. I can see the similarities in the beads but yes, the clasp looks wrong. Could have been changed or this is something else. I see the details on the side of the clasp, the spirals that support the thread, as an interesting details. I see the same detail in a necklace posted here recently.
    12. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 5 years ago
      ... Yes a blue necklace posted by AuntMolly. That necklace has another clasp though.
    13. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 5 years ago
      Thankyou also Aura!

      The spirals at clasp are tiny coiled wire called "French wire" .7 or .85mm coils that are cut and threaded onto the wire to give a finished look at the clasp ends. Basically only used on nice quality necklaces since it is an "extra step". This can be hand-coiled around a needle or bought in packages in many different metals at all prices.

      Glass Alexandrite Beads ?
    16. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 5 years ago
      Dear CW fellows! Sorry for late answer, which happens now and then beause of how my life is at the moment. Please know I´m really greatful for your advice and nice and interesting coments! I´m looking into the Ikora as the alexandrite... As soon as I can get hold of the right lamp to test for alexandrite I will let you know. Thankyou!

      I’m with Mani!
      Alexandrite, when you mentioned blue/purple, it was all I could come up with. Phil taught me about Alexandrite and now I have a whole drawer full!
      Wonderful beautiful beads!
      It’s BEAD WEEK on CW!
    18. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 2 months ago
      Thanks. Yes it has turned into bead week :) Ms.ChrystalShip. Yes these are puzzeling.
      Maybe glassbeads made to look like Alexandrite stone? I don't know the weight of the stone but these are heavy.
