Fine Silver and Lampwork Beads Necklace


This 18" choker necklace features a combination of large vintage round fine silver beads with a variety of contemporary handmade lampwork beads.

The large fine silver beads are oxidized with age. Although they can be easily cleaned to restore bright shine, I chose to leave them oxidized to preserve the noble aged look, contrasting with and attenuated by the modern lampwork in shades of aqua blue. The silver beads range from 22mm to 15mm in diameter. The wavy lampwork disc beads range from 26 to 20mm, smaller round lampwork beads are 10-12mm. Silver asymmetric Mykonos disk spacers are approximately 9x18mm.

The clasp is a simple sterling silver s-hook, also oxidized.
