A Short History...

Glass has been a prevelant feature of costume pieces since the invention of jewellery. An easily accessible material that can be formed into any shape and dyed any colour.

This necklace is highlt likely to have been created in Czechoslovakia due to the good quality and unusual shaping of the glass beads and the use of highly decorative filigree metal findings.
