Vintage 24 Karat Gold Foil Twist Shaped Venetian Bead Necklace, 30 Inches
This Vintage, 24 Karat Gold Foil & Crystal Clear Murano Glass, "Twist" necklace is a very old style, that I had made in the 1980's.
The large, oval shaped "twist", Venetian beads were made one-by-one under the flame; first starting with crystal clear Murano glass, then covering that in 24 Karat Gold Foil, and then covering the entire bead with crystal clear Murano Glass.
The large "twist" beads, are 1 1/4 inch long, and the smaller handmade Venetian beads are 8mm, baroque round, "melon" shaped beads.
The necklace length is 30 inches (76cm.), is handknotted, accented with gold metallic bead caps, and finished with a barrel clasp.
