Vintage Amethyst Bead Necklace -Vintage Chinese Cloisonne,Vintage Japanese Millefiori,Vintage Emerald Green Onyx Beads


Vintage Chinese 1970s Amethyst Carved Melon Beads,Vintage Chinese Emerald Green Chalcedony Beads, Vintage 1970s Chinese Cloisonne Beads,Vintage Japanese Purple Millefiori Teardrop Glass Beads,Silver

Large vintage 1970s amethyst beads ( approximately 3/4" in diameter !) that have been carved in a melon twist shape ( very characteristic of the 1970s -1980s in Hong Kong ) are the focal points of this one of a kind hand knotted necklace. There are also 8mm amethyst beads as well .

These gorgeous large carved melon beads have the normal inclusions and feathers found in this type of material .

Unusual vintage Chinese cloisonne beads from the 1970s frame each amethyst bead - these cloisonne beads feature the gem like colors found in the rest of this necklace .

► Cloisonne from this time period is quite sought after and collected by many people as the workmanship is exquisite unlike the cloisonne currently being mass produced and exported from China.
I have added silver plated abacus shaped beads from the 1940s for an ornate texture and to compliment the ornate pattern found on the vintage purple Japanese millefiori teardrop beads.
These millefiori teardrop beads were imported by me in the very early 1980s for a design I created for the Smithsonian's Museum of Natural History museum shop and mail order catalogs.

►Millifiori' literally means “thousand flowers”. To make such beads, thin rods of different colors of glass are bundled together, with the ends of the rods forming a design, such as flowers. The bundle is fused together, then cross section slices are cut off, jelly-roll fashion. These slices are applied and melted over a glass core. The resulting bead has a three dimensional look filled with flowers or other patterns.◀

Finally gorgeous emerald green chalcedony beads in 2 different sizes make up the framework of this necklace which has been hand knotted on silk cord which I dyed emerald green to blend with these chalcedony beads.

This one of a kind necklace measures approximately 28" in length and it will arrive gift wrapped in a vintage Chinese embroidered silk brocade purse all ready for gift giving.

◉ I also sell these vintage embroidered silk brocade purses - available in 3 different sizes - in my other Etsy vintage supply shop -

When I thought that I had ordered two of these and then checked out I had to order another set. The seller was very kind and combined my two orders and refunded my shipping.
