New at Bumbershoot Designs. Seattle Rain Drops Vintage Glass Pearl Necklace, Antique Clasp

There are a number of new pieces in Bumbershoot Designs this week, but in keeping with the pearl theme that was the focus of the Bumbershoot monthly newsletter, I offer this new necklace.  It's been a while since I have offered teardrop necklaces in the Seattle Rain series, so it was really exciting to find these gorgeous vintage Japanese glass pearls to work with.

To my mind, with classic designs the components must be absolutely top notch quality for the design to sing. These vintage glass pearls are in glorious condition for their age (60+ years) and the embedded wires allow the bead to come to a real point at the top, so the lines are really elegant.

Plus, the sterling silver scalloped chain provides such a graceful line around the neck.
I finished this necklace with an antique clasp, Edwardian, from the early 1900's, direct off the original card onto the necklace.  Yes, that's right, at least 100 years old.  Cool!

It just doesn't get much better than that!  Works like a charm too! Well, as you can see, more than 100 years later...

...Quality Guaranteed.
You will find this necklace in the vintage pearls section of Bumbershoot Designs, and if you don't, just contact me.
