Navy blue beaded necklace featuring 5 strands of vintage lucite beads. The beads in this necklace are varied in shape & size for a great, textured look. Beads are shiny opaque finish in that great retro look & they were made in the 1960s. Necklace measures 15.5-16" at its shortest + a 6" extender. Lightweight and fun to wear: a classic style that will outlast trends. Most all jewelry is hand-finished & designed here in the US. Most all jewelry parts are salvaged as leftovers from warehouses (specifically one buy back in 2004) in the jewelry districts so this line is sustainable and features vintage goods and not newly made plastics. Lots of the lines are hand-dyed as well. Earrings are hand set with surgical steel posts which are hypoallergenic and great for those of us with sensitive ears. Lightweight and fun to wear!
Made in United States of America
