VINTAGE ART DECO PINK ART GLASS NECKLACE (repaired)
Price: S$30.00
Click here to purchase: http://lemonkitscharms.com/shop/vintage-jewellery/vintage-retro-necklaces-shop/vintage-art-deco-art-glass-pink-beaded-necklace-nk00049

Size: abt 53" length, 6-9mm beads
Fine - very good condition, aging on the beads. There are quite some scuffs on the faux pearl beads and their coating has worn off some, therefore the fine condition. The rest of the beads are in excellent condition. The necklace consists of entirely glass beads, with givre-glass, pink striped, opaque milk pink rounds, translcent faux pearls and clear seed beads as spacers. It has been restrung and given new findings and spring ring clasp as the original had corroded badly. This is long enough for you to wear it 2-3 times around your neck. The beads were from about the art deco era 1920s-30s.

Size: 18.5" length, 6- 16mm beads
Good condition, aging and the beads do have some darkening. The biggest bead shows signs of fine crackling from age. This is made of an unusual type of old plastic in a graduating size, and is an older piece. It has been restrung on Fireline threads for added security with new clamshell knot covers as the old cords were dirty and lax. Screw barrel clasp is original and has patina. Beads are from the 1920s-30s.

VINTAGE KIM COPPER TREBLE CLEF MUSIC NECKLACE
Price: S$20.00
Click here to purchase: http://lemonkitscharms.com/shop/vintage-jewellery/vintage-retro-necklaces-shop/vintage-kim-copper-music-necklace-treble-clef-nk00043

Size: 19.5 x 5mm chain, 48 x 54mm pendant
Good - very good condition, lots of patina on the chain which is plated over metal. The foldover clasp is signed 'Kim'. The pendant is a large copper disc with a treble clef symbol. It was oxidised to bring out the accents and then sealed. Unfortunately there is a fingerprint under the lacquer and can be seen when faced to the light (top left side). Can't find any info on this artisan but she specialises in copper jewellery. Probably 1950s.

Good condition, discolouration on the clasp (to a coppery colour which is just as well) and a bit of aging on the beads. Ceramic corrugated beads in various tones. The back of the necklace is smaller than the front for less bulkiness. Screw barrel clasp. Probably 1970s/80s.

RETRO RED FLORAL PORCELAIN BEADS ON CORD NECKLACE
Price: S$28.00
Click here to purchase: http://lemonkitscharms.com/shop/vintage-jewellery/vintage-retro-necklaces-shop/retro-red-floral-porcelain-tube-beads-cord-necklace-nk00036

Size: 22.5", 13 x 25mm beads
Good condition with minor aging. Glazed ceramic beads with decals of purple florals that extends to each side of the whole bead. A bit of the glaze has chipped off the edges (near the holes) but is a minor defect. There are brass spacers in between the beads to space them out. It comes on a vermillion coloured cord that is knotted at the end and looks very bohemian! Probably 1970s.
