Red Berry Spatter
A hot summer splash of red gives this necklace an eye-catching accent. The delicately enamelled Art Deco brass buckle with the red champlevé triangular sunray panels is jewel-like and striking.
The old beads, which I found to create the necklace, are a perfect match. The longer string is made from a striking graduated necklace of spatter glass beads from the 1930’s and the graduating beads have been centred, so they are larger at the bottom of this necklace to make it balance; it is spaced with gold miyuki galvanised and green mini spacer beads.
The second string is created from genuine vintage Peking glass beads – the period glass version of jade – that were very popular from the 1920’s to the 1940’s. These are spaced with bright red, small glass beads and both strings are knotted on silk.
The strings measure 82cms (32 inches) and 86cms (34 inches). The buckle measures 5.5cms (just over 2 inches) long, and 2cms (just under
1 inch) at its widest point.
The necklace is sold with a pair of silver gilt drop earrings made from matching beads with ball, post and butterfly backs.
