Vintage Glass Chandelier Drop with Agate Beads Statement Necklace
Years ago - I stumbled across a box of dusty glass chandelier drops in an antique shop.
I soldered this LARGE (2.50") AND HEAVY (1 oz) clear drop with lead-free pewter.
A dark black patina was added to give the glass drop a rustic finish.
Six rhinestones were soldered to the front of the smooth glass drop.
The chandelier drop hangs on a 28" long blue-gray wax Irish linen cord (when worn the cord drops 14" down).
Round 6mm faceted agate beads are separated by a single knot. The beads are in mixed shades of purple, pink and brown.
Turkey red leather cord was wrapped around the bail and tied off.
IMPORTANT: When heated pewter does not flow smoothly. So, please expect your piece to have organic pit and texture marks. This definitely gives your one of a kind piece character.
