Czech Serpentine Cobalt Blue, Turquoise and Gray Black Agate Necklace

Details

Unique and innovative Czech glass serpentine beads in shades of cobalt blue, turquoise and gray have gone into this necklace design. The colors and style make it easy to step from work to evening with ease. The Czech glass serpentine beads are fire-polished and multi-faceted to catch the light against the opaque ocean mix shades. Each end of the larger Czech glass beads are surrounded with beaded and scalloped gunmetal bead caps. In between the Czech serpentine beads I added black agate rondelles to enhance the black lines on the Czech serpentine beads. Graduating towards the back of the necklace are more black agate rounds and smaller Czech serpentine glass beads. The necklace is strung on turquoise Soft Flex professional beading wire produced in the United States. It has been finished off with gunmetal wire guards to add protection from wear on the beading wire. This will ensure longer life to the necklace. To secure the necklace I use twisted tornado crimps produced by Via Murano in their signature shade called moonlight. For the closure I added a gunmetal lobster claw clasp. Duroplate blackjack chain is attached to allow for additional adjustment to the length and drape of the necklace. Duroplate is a trademark product of Via Murano and is produced in the United States.

The overall length of the necklace is 18.5 inches or approximately 47 centimeters in length. With the addition of the 2 inches of chain will allow you to adjust this to 21.5 inches or 52 centimeters in length. The necklace will come with a complimentary jewelry pouch and as an added bonus I will include a matching pair of earrings on gunmetal ear wires!! A great way to complete your set without the additional cost.

Thank you for visiting my studio!

Note: Please be aware that not all monitors will show colors exactly the same. The colors may appear lighter or darker based on the type of monitor you have. As I edit my photos I ensure they are as exact as they can be to my jewelry pieces. Natural and artificial lighting can enhance or diffuse shades of stones and crystals as you wear them. I also use different backgrounds in my photos so that you can see some of the color variance. Enjoy!

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

Beads have been made in Bohemia since Roman times, but it was an intermittent industry. After the collapse of the Roman empire, about 400 A.D., there was little demand for luxury items such as beads in Europe. By the 900's locally made beads were placed in some tombs and by the 1200's glass factories were turning out a variety of glass products, but these were mostly household wares with only a few beads present. Several small factories were turning out beads for rosaries, but it was not until the 1550's that a major glass industry was founded in the cities of Jablonec, Stanovsko, and Bedrichov (modern Reichenberg) in Bohemia (in the current Czech Republic). These glassmakers were mostly decentralized cottage crafters making beads for use in larger, centralized, jewelry factories.
In spite of the political upheavals over the centuries the Czech Republic has maintained their history and innovation in glass and crystal design.

Czech serpentine ocean mix beads, black agate, Duroplate blackjack chain, Via Murano twisted tornado crimps, gunmetal beadcaps, gunmetal lobster claw clasp
