Turquoise Glass Bead & Diamanté 1950s Bracelet
1" wide; 2 1/2" diameter when ends are touching (but size is flexible due to construction)
This vintage glass bead bracelet was made in one of the most popular colors of the 1950s: turquoise. It features molded-glass leaves interspersed with diamanté and woven onto a gold-tone mesh cuff. This bold, three-dimensional piece is not for the faint-hearted! Because it has a hinge but no clasp, this bracelet can accommodate a variety of wrist sizes. This is a rare instance where I have two of the same jewels, and they are shown together in the last photo. However, the bracelets are priced separately, so you may choose to buy only one.
