Inspired by these vintage teal glass tube and faceted seed beads, I was thrilled to pair them with some round recycled glass beads with a similar teal tint. This long glass necklace is a beautiful dream of transparent teal blue green and can be worn long, doubled or even as a wrap cuff.
The 6 mm recycled glass beads include some tiny bubbles and mix so well with the vintage glass "bugle beads” and with the more textured seed beads. Approximately 36 to 37" long, this necklace closes with a silver plated brass clasp and ring.
Works beautifully layered with other cuffs or necklaces too-I’ve added photos of some possibilities using other necklaces available in my studio here.
I love this recycled glass as the color reminds me of the old canning jars I remember seeing at Grandma's house as a kid--for some reason, those jars were not clear like they are now, but were in various shades of pale green and pale teals and blues.
I love the way the tubes and orbs used here contrast for a fun, modern necklace even if it is of recycled and vintage parts. The vintage seed beads have tiny facets so add teal texture between recycled round beads. The idea of recycling and giving "stuff" a second life is very inspiring although it does make this a limited edition.
WillOaks Studio chains are wrapped in tissue and slipped into velvet bags for storing and gifting. These are mailed in padded envelopes via first class mail with a tracking number (sorry, tracking is not available for international orders.)
This teal glass original will be a perfect fun accessory and this light and airy looking chain is just made to dress up or dress down; to wear alone or mix with other necklaces. Coordinates with many other pieces in my studio, too, including earrings (use "teal" in the search box to narrow down the selections!)
