This 1920s necklace of alternating amethyst glass and crystal beads was designed to compliment the long-waisted, slim flapper silhouette but is equally fashionable today. This substantial piece has just been professionally restrung with knots and no clasp. Although the necklace was designed to be worn as a single long (35″) strand, you can wear it doubled if you you have a slim neck. A pearl extender clasp (see the seventh photo), which makes the doubling possible, will be included with this necklace. This piece looks great with my Amethyst Bead Long Art Deco Necklace, also weighty, as shown in the last photo. Scroll down to see a selection of coordinating bracelets and earrings.
A faceted clear crystal ball hangs from a fine sterling silver chain in these dainty 1920s Art Deco earrings. The all-original screw-backs (which can be modified for pierced ears) have a framed glass stone at the earlobe. These stones appear to have darkened only because the attachment of the screw-back mechanisms does not allow the light to pass through the stones. These earrings go with everything!

This 1920s necklace of faceted amethyst glass beads never goes out of style. It has been professionally restrung without a clasp, has substantial weight and was designed to be worn as a single long (31") strand. As an alternative, the third photo shows the necklace worn doubled, with the aid of a device called a pearl extender clasp (shown in the fourth photo), which I will include with this piece. This necklace looks fabulous with my Amethyst & Crystal Bead Art Deco Necklace, which is also weighty, shown in the last photo. You could wear one or both necklaces with any of my amethyst Art Deco bracelets – scroll down to see a selection.
