THese Vintage HUGE heavy deep red lampwork beads create the most amazing stage for the richly colored rhinestone drop that hangs from it. These are the largest glass beads I have seen measuring in at 3/4" wide. Bands of gold glass are blown into the red and subtle white glass is dripped onto it just like a wedding cake.
These huge beads go almost all the way around the neck with the exception of fabulous swarovski citrine colored graduated rondells that lead to the clasp. A vintage brass filigree hanger holds a glass citrine with a moonstone effect. From that hangs this large Citrine colored solid brass pendant that measures 2" long. When you hold this in your hand you can appreciate the sheer size of these fabulous vintage lampwork beads. The necklace measures 19 1/2" long, not counting the 3 1/4" drop for the pendant and hanger. ONe of kind and truly dramatic, this is a fabulous statement necklace.
