Black Jewelry from Antique Beads

I got those black beads from treasure hunting in New York. What makes these round beads special is that they are antique hollow glass beads. Glass hollow beads were used before plastic was invented and it could offer the vast array of adorning materials to the garment industry. Due to light weight it was possible to sew lots of hollow glass beads on beautiful dresses and jackets and purses etc.

I matched the hollow glass beads with square shaped French jet nailhead beads and new seed beads (I really need to get some antique black seed beads!). In the black brooch dangles I used vintage black beads (I got from France) that are not hollow because hollow ones are fragile and need to be tucked between bigger beads for safety. These dangle earrings and tassel brooch can be either worn separately or as a set.

by Victorian dress appliques. Each dangle is finished off with old
Prosser bead in oval shape.

Round hollow glass beads are tucked safely between higher
domed square shaped beads. This will protect the fragile hollow
glass beads in this brooch.

Need musta värvi antiiksed helmed sain ma New Yorgist. Ümmargused helmed teeb eriliseks see, et need on nö. puhutud, seest õõnsad. Õõnsad klaashelmed olid kasutusel enne plastmassi tulekut, mis võimaldas toota suures valikus erinevaid kaunistusi rõivatööstusele. Kuna õõnes klaas oli kergem, kui nö. täis-klaasist helmed, siis sai neid rõivastele rohkem õmmelda.

Ma panin õõnsad helmed kokku ruudukujuliste nailhead helmeste ja uute seemnehelmestega (ma tõesti peaksin hankima endale musti antiikseid seemnehelmeid!). Prossi ripatsites kasutasin täis-klaasist ümmargusi helmeid (mis sain Prantsusmaalt), kuna õõnsad on liialt õrnad. Neid kõrvarõngaid ja prossi võib edukalt kanda nii eraldi kui ka komplektina.

Vintage Style Brooch with Vintage Glass Opals

Gorgeous vintage glass opals matched with vintage clear glass and antique hollow glass beads are the main components of this brooch. Those glass opals have silver foil inside glass, reflecting light through opal glass like orange clouds reflect the sun at sunset...

Imeilusad vintage klaasist opaalid koos kristallivärvi klaasi ja antiiksete õõnsate klaashelmestega on selle prossi peamised komponendid. Klaasist opaalidel on sees hõbedast lehekesed, mis peegeldavad valgust läbi pool-läbipaistva klaasi nagu oranžid pilved päikese valgust loojangul...

Vintage Style Grey Jewellery in Progress

I'm inspired by the crisp hues of frost turning everything into quiet sleep. Covering with sparkling ice crystals and muting all the colors. Take a look at the vintage and new materials for next collection.
