The aqua blue colors in this beautiful beaded necklace are absolutely stunning in person!
The necklace was handmade during the late 1960s. The total length of the necklace measures 54 inches long.
The blue beads are made of ceramic with painted enamel. They measure approximately 1/2 and inch wide and all vary a little in their organic shape. The technique used to paint the ceramic beads gives them a natural turquoise look, with hues of green and different shades of blue throughout. Each bead is unique and a thrill to look at.
Between each blue ceramic bead are gold-colored glass tube beads. These smaller beads provide a nice contrast in color and size, and keep the blue stones nicely spaced apart.
The necklace closes in the back with a brass screw clasp. The clasp is in good condition, it works well and there is zero tarnishing. The necklace could easily be wrapped around and slipped over the head without having to undo the clasp.
Please note that there is some minor cracking of the ceramic beads. This is not unusual considering their age, and adds some extra character that makes it look even more like real turquoise! Over all this necklace is in good vintage condition and would look great with a Southwestern inspired outfit!
