Recent online purchase for more than I usually pay. I kept thinking .....probably not Neiger if it's under $275, but I researched and believe it's correct, matches other styles. Great color too! This glass necklace features the Pharoah and scarab design made popular by the Neiger Brothers bead and jewelry company after 1922 discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb. Original necklaces were knotted with beige cotton thread and the length was 32" or so - made in red, navy, robin egg blue, black, yellow, orange, off white and green! In picture 3 I show a necklace with mummy beads from another necklace that was taken apart over the years. I plan to marry the 2 necklaces and restore to best original design as I can. My project for the weekend. Thanks for looking friends.
PS: Moved my weekend upcycles to picture 1: I found the original Neiger necklace online so I "copied" as I was doing the redo. Still plan to knot the necklace, but for now I am working on balance since some beads are missing. Then, I was having fun and decided to updo the mummy beads with old brown Czech beads in my stash. It turned out nice....I will probably change it again when I find more of the right Neiger beads.
