After World War II, the jewelry glass-making center of Europe moved from Bohemia (western Czechoslovakia) to Bavaria (southern Western Germany). This necklace practically glows with pieces of the Bavarian glass-makers’ art: textured and smooth navettes, and a rare piece of marbled glass in the center.
- vintage mid-century German glass navettes in matt, rock-textured hematite and smoky topaz, as well as in smooth topaz
- a rare glass stone of hand-marbled carnelian, jet, and goldstone glass, made in Western Germany
- 1930s goldstone glass cabochons, made in Czechoslovakia
- ornate brass stamping, made today in the USA in antique dies
- Gray opal Swarovski crystals
- 16 inches long, extending to 20 inches
