A Short History...

Glass has been a prevalent feature of costume pieces since the invention of jewellery. An easily accessible material that can be formed into any shape and dyed any colour. Glass was heavily used in 1940s pieces, such as this bracelet, because of it's ability to meet the need for affordable cocktail jewellery during and after the Second World War.
