One-of-a-Kind Necklace. Vintage, Chevron, Venetian Trade Beads, with extra large 36mm red center bead; large, medium and small Chevron Beads, Murano Glass, 24 inches, (61cm.).
Chevron, Venetian Trade Beads, Six Layered, Five Layered, and Four Layered, Large, Multicolored Chevron Beads with Sterling Silver decorative accent beads, small, blue faceted crystals, and sterling silver larger "infinite"lobster style spring clasp.
These Chevron beads are from my Vintage supply. I purchased them in Venice, Italy, many, many years ago, in the 1970s. I just recently decided to use them in this One-of-a-Kind, designer necklace.
The Chevrons are hand made in Murano, Italy. You may know them by other names, such as "Rosetta" or "Star Beads", but "Chevron" is the name most often attributed to this bead.
The Chevron beads are drawn multi-layered glass; using various colors of Murano Glass.
The overall condition of the Chevron beads is excellent to good, as I have been saving these beads in my personal collection.
The sizes of the Chevron beads are as follows:
- The large, red, center bead is 5 layered, and is approximately 36mm long x 22mm wide.
- The blue Chevron is 5 layered: 20mm long x 23mm wide.
- The brown Chevron is 5 layered: 20mm long x 23mm wide.
- The green Chevron is 6 layered: 20mm long x 20mm wide.
- The yellow Chevron is 5 layered: 22mm long x 20mm wide.
- The 2 red, smaller Chevron beads, are 5 layered, and are approximately 12mm x 13mm.
- The 2 blue, smaller Chevron beads, are 4 layered, and are approximately 12mm x 12mm.
- There are 6 Decorative sterling silver accent beads, 10mm, with black "engraving" on the sides.
- There are 4 sterling silver accent beads, 8mm, smooth, shiny finish.
- There are many blue, faceted crystals, and small, silver seed bead spacers on this necklace, along with large silver bead caps.
- The Vintage Chevron necklace is finished with a large, sterling silver clasp.
This is a One of a Kind Necklace.
