WOW! What a dynamite summer statement necklace and a feast for the senses!! I just designed this entire Madagascar Collection based on the exotic black and white striped glass beads of different colors. There's red, lime and both dark and light orange and they are the coolest beads ever! These have a definite African look to them, but I am not sure where they were made. They resemble the other glass beads in the red and blue pieces in this collection which are Tibetan, so they may be Tibetan. At any rate, I randomly received a box of beads from one of my customers who had inherited a large variety of beads, and these were among those beads, so they are probably old and they are definitely one of a kind!
This bold statement necklace features beautiful cobalt blue glass from Tibet, copper beads from Greece that are cast in a green patina and a gorgeous giant turquoise donut pendant.
