Wear a piece of history with this bohemian necklace, which was handmade using 2,000-year-old Roman Glass beads.
The beads were carved from ancient, broken vessels such as perfume bottles, water jugs, plates and cups. These various glass vessels were traded eastward along the silk road trade route from Rome to the East, and many fragments are found in Afghanistan and the Middle East and repurposed into fine glass beads. The Afghani people are known for their expert hand carving of small stone and glass beads, with each bead displaying small irregularities, which along with their old age and significant wear makes them unique and beautiful.
This beach-themed necklace features a small pewter sand dollar pendant as its focal point, with a matching starfish dangling on the end of the sterling silver extender chain. The Roman Glass beads, in colors ranging from aqua to turquoise, dark blue and pale yellow, were combined with antique pewter accents. A large antique pewter clasp makes it easy to fasten this necklace, which adjusts anywhere from 15.5" to 18.5".
Artisan jewelry, handmade with top-quality materials, for jewelry that lasts.
