    Amethyst & Crystal Bead Long Art Deco Necklace

    , ,

    This 1920s necklace of alternating amethyst glass and crystal beads was designed to complement 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 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 the Amethyst Bead Long Art Deco Necklace, also weighty, shown in the last photo. Scroll down to see a selection of coordinating bracelets and earrings.

    Amethyst Bead Long Art Deco Necklace

    , ,

    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.

    Baroque Pearl & Amethyst Bead 1970s Long Necklace by Miriam Haskell

    ,

    This Miriam Haskell pearl necklace is a beautiful example of this maker’s work. The long strand of faux cream baroque pearls and pearl bead spacers is interspersed with faceted amethyst glass beads. The pearls are textured and somewhat varying in size. Wear this piece as a single long strand or doubled, depending on your neckline and the look you want to create. Although I usually prefer earlier vintage jewels, this beautiful necklace was part of my personal collection because it is so elegant, timeless and versatile. The wear to the nacre of some pearls does not detract in any way from the lovely appearance of this piece.

    Black & Cream Galalith Beaded Art Deco Necklace

    , ,

    This vintage bead necklace is a piece that’s especially fun for summer. It has alternating larger and smaller black beads that culminate in a centerpiece of two plaques designed to look carved and two cream-colored cones separated by a black disk. Made from an early plastic (Bakelite or Galalith?), this necklace from the 1920s to early-1930s closes with an unusual push-in clasp. This piece is from my personal collection.

    Black & Red Galalith & Chrome German Machine Age Necklace

    , ,

    This German Machine Age necklace has as its centerpiece a row of three arrow-shaped black Galalith plaques covered with chrome triangle panels, with a fourth plaque as a drop and a red Galalith cylindrical bead on both sides. The chain links and findings are chrome.  This piece reminds me of the work of Jakob Bengel.  I had four links removed from this necklace because I bought it for myself, but I saved the pieces for the future owner.

    Black Bakelite & Diamanté German Art Deco Choker

    , ,

    This vintage Bakelite necklace is probably from Germany. It has curved links of black Bakelite alternating with slightly larger curved links of channel-set diamanté. The components are threaded on a chain with metal spacers between each link. When laid out on a table, the necklace retains a slightly curved shape. The back of one of the Bakelite links has a small chip (shown in the last photo), but the appearance and integrity of the piece have not been compromised. This necklace was made for a slim neck, so please note the length (14 3/4″) and check your neck size before purchasing this piece. The look of this necklace is Machine Age and very classy.

    Black Bakelite & Diamanté Machine Age Necklace by Schreiber & Hiller

    , ,

    I love the design of this Machine Age necklace! Six curved links set with diamanté alternate with black Bakelite links with roof-shaped (pointed) tops. Because the jeweled links are curved, the centerpiece follows the curve of your neck instead of laying out in a straight line. A scroll chain with a spring-ring-clasp completes this elegant and easy-to-wear necklace that I always enjoyed.

    Blue & Cream Carved Galalith Art Deco Necklace

    , ,

    Plastic beads that were molded to simulate carving were very popular in the Art Deco era. What sets this 1930s necklace apart is the colors — dark blue on cream. This combination and the design are lovely, and the different shapes of the beads add interest. Even the screw-in clasp forms a bead. I’m not sure what type of early plastic this piece is (possibly Galalith, the French equivalent of Bakelite) – it’s light, wonderful and fun to wear in any case.

    This vintage glass bead necklace has clusters of blown-glass beads in shades of blue wound together with wire and linked with clear glass rings.
