A beautiful half buckle in filigree brass and set with green glass beads is the star of this necklace. It is unsigned, but very typical of the jewellery made in Czechoslovakia and previously in Bohemia in the early part of the 20th century. I combined it with vintage handmade glass beads in a matching green and some antique brass connectors in homage to the necklaces made in this area during the 1930s.
It measures about 46 cm around the chain including the buckle and is finished with a classic hook clasp.
Matched earrings are available.
Sustainably made in Australia using vintage and repurposed materials which show evidence of their age in minor wear and a darker patina: I think that is what gives them so much charm.
