Vintage Czech Glass Black Gold Necklace
This unique necklace features a vintage Czech glass focal square measuring 2" in diameter, that dates back to the 1950's. I was very fortunate to obtain the last of the remaining quantity of these beauties, which were all hand blown exclusively for one of the premiere Eastern European glass bead stores in Manhattan made famous in the 30's and 40's.
The focal square has been wrapped several times over with multiple feet of 22 gauge, tarnish resistant, Argentium silver wire. Its surrounding links have been fabricated using black, silver and gold Borosilicate beads (approximately 1" in diameter), and have also been wrapped in Argentium silver wire. Finished with a sterling silver clasp, this stunning piece measures 19 inches in length.
