    Love this mix of Czech, Japanese and possibly Italian red glass beads circa 1920's-30's. It's 26" with a two brass/glass accent beads. The triangle dimple beads are about .75". I love the geometric "we are Devo" helmet beads too. My taste slants more to deco than art nouveau shapes - but both are represented here.

    Friends you know how picky I am about old beads, however I like the restring up-cycle the seller did here so I'm leaving it as is - for now anyway! :-)

      My kind of glass necklace - and my color, too! :-)))))

      Thanks Bonnie - I love red too and great easy length to wear. This would look good on you! :-)

      Great up-cycle, amazing that the different beads mixed show the same red :-)
      Love red too!

      Bonnie - you're the red queen right? I'm the green queen :-) But I have some nice red, and some nice red bakelite now.

      Kyra - yes, it was a very nice up-cycle. The only thing I would have done differently was to put tiny bronze beads from old vintage purses to give illusion of knotted thread like I did in this up-cycle. (181274-art-deco-glass-necklace--redone-with-era components) ha ha! Someday if I get a bag of bronze beads I'll redo this. Loving it right now though.

      This necklace is amazing! Never seen such interesting beads, and believe me when I say I've had a lot of bead necklaces in my day. ( Hippie beads, I used to take apart old bead necklaces and make my own concoctions. Now I think, What did I do?!)

      Merry Christmas valentino!

      Lovely old beads, Merry Christmas to you!
      LOL at your "Devo" description too ;)
    14. valentino97 valentino97, 4 years ago
      Thanks MsCrystalship for your nice comment - that's okay - I was always most interested in the original "who wore this?", but I have concocted a lot of jewelry over the years. :-)

      Thank you mcheconi - Merry Christmas to you!

      Thank you lentilka11 - Merry Christmas, hope you had a great holiday.

      Thank you Pebbles - mainly for reading my post and getting DEVO!! We are Devo?!

      I got a kick out of the Devo description too, and knew which ones you meant at a glance, lol. It's a great necklace, the color and the beads, and a wearable length as you say. Thanks for sharing. Merry Christmas, Val. :)
