Glass beaded necklace, simple and elegant - the classics
Looking for a simple, but special beaded necklace? Did you consider glass? My clients adore this tubular necklace made from clear glass beads, by hand, from traditional glass beads.
It’s been a few years since I chose to bring this transparent glass bead necklace into my jewellery collection. Today it’s one of my classics. My clients generally like to twin it with its partner, the glass beaded tube bracelet. Sleek, luminous, discreet and comfortable : this tube necklace blends all the qualities of a simple and elegant jewel. Unique and affordable.
When we think of bead necklaces, we rarely think of glass beads. Nor necessarily of tubular necklaces. And yet, glass is a noble material, and has been used since time immemorial in the art of jewellery. And it lends itself perfectly to the tubular form of a rope. It is these two qualities that define the particularity of this bead necklace, its beautiful and essential character.
- Smooth, unchanging, precious : glass beads have been used in jewellery since Antiquity. It is a noble material that lasts and is light to wear.
- A radiant, tangible and rich gleam : clear glass beads have such a dense luminosity that you’d think you were wearing a pewter or titanium alloy rather than a glass bead necklace. And the reflection varies according to the colours of your outfit, resulting in a jewel that always has a new brightness.
- A luxurious length, almost made to measure : you can choose from 3 sizes for this glass bead necklace. Lariat, rope or XXL, you can even mix up the lengths to add to the opulence of these jewels.
Glass beads are light. Woven onto a soft thread, the necklace, available in 3 lengths, has an ethereal effect, lightly clinging to your movements.
Just like their sister beaded tube bracelets, my glass beaded necklaces are made by a craft group founded in 1985. AB Beadwork is based in the very poor province of KwaZulu-Natal, on the eastern coast of South Africa. The beaders, all local, are masters not only of their traditional Zulu craft but of their contemporary creations of unique and quality jewellery.
This glass beaded necklace will quickly become one of your favourite accessories, its form and colour perfect for any occasion, chic or casual. And what’s more, it’s ethic and ethical.
