Bohemian necklace, handmade using 2,000-year-old Roman Glass nuggets and soft deerskin leather.
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 necklace features small aqua green Roman Glass nuggets in different sizes and shapes, hand knotted onto strong brown cord and separated by faceted gold Pyrite gemstones. A super-soft deerskin leather strap in a vibrant tan color finishes the necklace and feels wonderfully soft against your neck.
Wear it short or long, depending on your outfits or your mood! Adjustable length--simply slide the pewter bead along the leather to adjust the necklace's length. Maximum length = 36".
Artisan jewelry, handmade with top-quality materials, for jewelry that lasts.
