Schreiner pieces typically feature stunning art glass and imaginative color combinations, and these lavish 1950s earrings are no exception. A large citrine-colored art glass cabochon is surrounded by oval pale amethyst (lavender) and round citrine glass stones, with dangling pale sapphire and lavender crystal beads. The setting is silver-tone metal with clip-backs. What a lovely statement! You can wear these show-stopper earrings with the latest fashion trends as well as your perennial favorites and receive compliments every time. I have to say these are the most extraordinary earrings I've ever seen!
Faceted green-glass disks sandwiched between rhinestone rondelles alternate with blue-green-glass beads and metal spacers to form this colorful necklace from France or the former Czechoslovakia. The beads are strung on chain with a green-glass-disk screw-in clasp.
