Gold, Round, Graduated, Alessandro Designed Necklace on Chain
Large, graduated, 24 karat gold foil and crystal clear Murano glass, Venetian beads, on a gold filled, large link chain.
Gold filled clasp is a large, lobster style spring clasp.
Length of necklace is 18 1/2 inches, or 47 cm.
The 24 karat gold foil and crystal Murano glass beads, are old beads, from the 1980's, that I got out of the back room, of my oldest bead makers, Germana Perini, who has since retired. The handmade, lampworked beads, are made one-by-one under the flame. These beads are especially beautiful, with lots of 24 karat gold foil; with the gold filling the inside of the beads; gold all the way to the edge of the crystal.
I've been saving these beads; waiting to put them in a special design. The beads range in size, and are graduated in size from 21mm, 18mm, 16mm, 14mm, 12mm, 10mm, and 8mm at the end near the clasp.
