#0556 Vintage Czech Glass Button & Faceted Bead Five-Strand Bracelet
And so the story...
While I can’t really discern the exact color of the glass, this unique vintage Czech glass button grabbed my attention on a recent scout to Tucson. (I love it when that happens!) The color falls somewhere in the ruby-purple arena and the fact that it is accented with bees just did it for me. These buttons are made using vintage molds from the factory’s vault; the buttons themselves are not actually “vintage.” That being said…I love them and the fact that there are only two sources in the Czech Republic making the glass buttons these days makes them even harder to come by and makes me appreciate them even more.
The button measures a tad over one inch in diameter and the Czech Jablonex glass fancy faceted beads in clear and jet and a gold-clear combo that glistens perfectly. The Florentine finish gold chains just round out the overall look of the piece.
Measures 7 ¼” in length with a one-inch extender. A good choice for all wrist sizes – as the girth of the overall design makes the length wear a bit shorter. I know, it’s that darn thing that I can’t explain. But, it’ll work. Closes with an oversized lobster clasp. Handmade in the USA using domestic and imported components. From the Tanya Lochridge Jewelry Vintage Collection.
