Venetian Bead Necklace: Vintage Venetian Bead Necklace
Click to enlarge
This is an incredible and very high quality hand-wrought and knotted art glass bead necklace that probably came from one of the premiere glass houses in Venice. The impressive technique is apparent in these Venetian art glass beads with gold and intricate glass threading technique on the center bead which is the size of a large gumball--about 3/4" across and each bead to the side of the central bead. The beads are generously sized and the colors have a fine brilliant color, especially the turquoise blue which rivals peacock glass. Some of the beads have metallic centers with applied bi-colored casings and others are tri-colored and contain gold mica. There are various sizes and shapes including some charming heart-shaped beads. The bead caps are consistent with Venetian findings. The clasp is of unusual quality with a metallic-colored peacock blue glass cabochon set into the clasp of approximately 3/4". The necklace measures approximately 22-1/2". There are some scuffs on the reverse of the clasp where someone apparently tried to test the clasp for gold. If you are an informed and knowledgeable glass lover, you will certainly appreciate the quality of the workmanship and high level of art that these beautiful beads represent.
