    I found this necklace for $1. I was sure that the beads were pressed amber. I took my chances.

    When I got home, I cut the necklace apart and sorted the beads according to their size. Then I looked for a vintage clasp and restrung the beads: the result is an almost perfect vintage pressed amber necklace!

    The necklace is not very large; it weights a bit over 40 grams. It makes a perfect addition to my pressed amber necklace collection.

    Thanks for looking:)

    P.S.: I have been away from CW for some time and have fallen behind answering your kind comments. I hope to catch up soon.
