the set SOLD
These hand done lamp-worked beads are probably Indian in origin, and they most likely are old, perhaps quite old. The workmanship is superb. The brass and glass compliment each other and they are enhanced by the jewel-like work on the round and elongated beads on the fringe. Very dramatic when worn. The choker is 13 1/2" around with a 1 3/4" extension, and is 1 5/8" wide...
