  11. There is probably some secret sellers circle somewhere - that likes to tease you with the urn mark... :)
  12. They are all so pretty!!
  13. love your kyratisations
  14. I like it.
  15. This is very interesting, valentino97, do you think so? I like the idea of some czech company using older elements!!
  16. The best possible way would be to see the cord in person, alas, we dont have the possibility :( (Unless you are visiting Slovakia :)). I envy you your level of knowledge! I would say that this is an "...
  17. I like the purple one
  18. Yes, I agree - it combines 2 different styles!! Pity it did not stay in the "older" line - but the outcome is beautiful.
  19. This is exactly how a 1920s-1930s Czech piece would be marked. I have several similar pieces. Is there a black faceted beads manufacturer that has Marc in name? P.S. I would say this is older, ...
  20. Thank you a lot!!
  21. Thank you! Unfortunately, it is not possible to rotate the ring. I tried it but I am afraid I would break the cord when I will push more.
  22. You have superb pieces in your collection!
  23. Thank you a lot, nutsabotas6 and cameosleuth! @ cameosleuth - dont flatter me - I am only guessing most of the time here :DDDD
  24. I love the design, and the usage of black enamel! You have nice pieces!!
  25. cameosleuth :DDDDDDDD As for the uranium glass: I dont think so. The mine is famous around here, but I never heard about glass making. But who knows?
  26. I will try to find more info on this.
  27. valentino97, sure, I can do so. Only part of the article is about beads making. This part are memories of Jaroslav Fabok from Lapáš. He was imprisoned in 1949 and was also a prisoner in Jáchymov (famo...
  28. this is beautiful!!
  29. cameosleuth, I can remember I have read this book where it was written "they made necklaces" - but maybe the author meant glass beads with that. An interesting problem, I will try to find more on ...
  30. Gorgeous, and I wish I had your knowledge! :)
  31. cameosleuth, we have a state organization that works with the former secret service archives and publicizes them. Former political prisoners (the ones that still live) also wrote a lot of books about...
  32. cameosleuth - thank you for the info about silver beads! So the necklace is apparently something newer indeed. How old can the silver beads be?
  33. Of course, I am sure most of the Czechoslovakia jewelry production was made by skilled crafters, not by prisoners. But part of it - probably after 1948 (communist coup) and until 1989 (Velvet revoluti...
  34. Found something here (if Google translate can translate that for you from slovak language in readable form, It should). https://mynitra.sme.sk/c/5066471/arpad-tarnoczy-nepotrebujeme-vymyslenych-hrdi...
  35. No no no, I wanted to say communist regime forced prisoners in Czechoslovakia to make necklaces. So in Czechoslovakia, not in Africa. Our country was far from democracy. I am pretty sure about it, as ...
  36. cameosleuth - yes, I checked the cord now, it is white, clean and unfrayed, looks unused
  37. Thank you for all your info, cameosleuth and valentino97! So interesting! As far I know Czechoslovakia used to supply Africa nations with some beads and necklaces during communism (they even made pris...
  38. crystal perfection!
  39. Glad you are ok. My thoughts and prayers with your country.
