VICTORIAN STYLE NECKLACE WITH ANTIQUE BICOLOR GLASS DROP
Price: S$45.00 (US$37.50)

Size: about 17.25" length, 64 x 50mm pendant
Handmade by me, the main glass drop is topaz-coloured with an olivine centre, also known as cuba glass, similar to those lovely watermelon glass except it is not green & red. This glass is rather old, likely an antique around 1920s-30s deco period, and I have been saving it for some time now. It does have aging on the glass surface with small scratches on the front, as well as aging on the filigree caps (has some disolouration) but still very pretty. It dangles from a nature-inspired oxidised brass, these are new high quality stampings made from original dies dating back to the Victorian era.

I added a glass faceted briolette, it looks clear in the photos but is actually a very pale pink. I surrounded the glass drop with some wireworked Japan glass beads. Comes on a skinny ox-brass chain with lobster clasp.
