Glass has been a prevelant feature of costume pieces since the invention of fashion jewellery. It's extrememly suitable for meeting the ever challenging and changing demands of costume jewellery designers because it's an easily accessible material that can be formed into any shape and dyed any colour. This bracelet was created in Czechoslovakia. The high quality of the glass and the use of highly decorative filigree metal findings are all typical of Czech jewellery. The colourways in this bracelet also indicate that it is Czechoslovakian.
