Antique glass bead spiral choker

This is one of my favorite pieces. It's made with cut glass beads from about 1920. They belonged to my grandmother and since the original necklace disintegrated, my mother's been hanging onto these for 50 years give or take. She gave them to me and I've been able to make them live again. The links are spirals made of 18 gauge sterling silver wire, each one graduated in size to fit the bead and connected by handmade sterling jumprings. It's a serious piece of work that I am immensely proud of.

  2. Hey thanks, but as you probably found out, it's not there. Sentimental value means I can't part with the beads.
