A vintage long necklace at 25" - The bigger glass beads have many colours in them, browns, yellows, white, also spots, lines - just lots going on! The smaller beads in two different shapes are beige in colour. Any further information on these lovely glass beads would be appreciated. Thanks for stopping by!

    Czech glass around 1930 I think. I saw one just like this on ebay - will see if I can find it for you.

    I would guess, Japan or Hong Kong, 50s or 60.

    glass artisans still practice this trade -- it is what is left over and trips the artisans trigger after the end of the day to perhaps throw into the fire and check out the goodies the next morning -- it is amazing what hot rocks will yield you -- i have played with many pieces of glass found up in the gorge and just pitched into the fire and then poked around the next morning to find my treasures to take and polish at the sand creek

    Sorry Justanovice - maybe they were on etsy incorrectly described as czech. I couldn't locate them on ebay. Perhaps the difference 1930s vs 1950'60s would be strung on wire. If it was 1930's it would be hand-knotted between or more uniform quality of beads.

    I found the ebay listing - which shows nearly the exact necklace you have but describes it as czech. It's listed for about $40 but hasn't sold yet.

    Thank you again valentino97 - I think that these beads and mine are identical! So now I know what they are! Again Many Thanks!
