20% SALE, Regularly $165, Now $132
This one of a kind kidney necklace is made with a polished 15mm kidney bead dropping from a rare vintage Czech glass stone. I found a cache of these vintage glass stones with a flower relief design. They are old Czech glass pieces, made in the 20's or 30's in an area of what was then called Czechoslovakia. I collect old Czech glass beads and Czech costume jewelry for its beautiful designs and skillful handcrafting. Glass pieces such as these were manufactured specifically for the active European jewelry industry of the era. These triangular glass stones survived all these years wrapped carefully in papers. It is a joy for a bead collector and jewelry designer to locate such treasure and use these rarities as steppingstones to my own jewelry designs. They were found as loose stones, but I had sterling bezels put around them as a frame, then added the kidney bead and sterling beads to form the chain.
The green color is the international color of Transplantation.
The necklace is 20" long. Including loops, the triangular piece is 1.25" x 1." Closure is a sterling and Malachite gemstone safety clasp. Keep this necklace in an air tight bag provided to deter sterling from oxidizing/tarnishing. I have a similar necklace is a sky blue color on my main website at www.TransplantGifts.com.
