Vintage 1940’s Trail Aventurine Glass Beads


Strung on nylon-coated steel jewellery wire, these 1940’s aventurine trail glass beads are a lovely bright summer colour.  


Each trail bead has been made by swirling copper aventurine glass trails over the bright turquoise blue background glass beads.  Aventurine is a liquid glass containing copper, or gold metal fragments, which is trailed over, or through the bead and become suspended in, or on the surface of the bead, once the glass has cooled and hardened.  


These are traditionally Italian by manufacture, although trail glass was also popular in Czechoslovakia and each bead is made individually, so they are all unique.  


The trail glass beads measure 12mm each and are separated by matt turquoise glass beads of the same era. The necklace measures 56cms (22 inches) long, and contains 14 copper aventurine trail glass beads.


The clasp is the original white metal barrel screw clasp.  The necklace is now re-wired and secure and in excellent condition; there is no damage to the beads.  

The necklace is sold with a matching pair of glass bead drop earrings, on silver-plated hook-backs, for pierced ears.
