On this enchanting necklace, satin glass tulips bloom from the stems and leaves of eight curving links. The tulips are handmade in the same process as when they originally appeared in the 1940s. Their satiny finish reflects light as a soft glow which moves in each sculptured flower. Iridescent lilac colored satin glass beads are individually linked for the neck chain, with Swarovski crystal accents among the tulips Burnished silver finish. Made in our Los Angeles studios. Signed Sweet Romance USA. Style N144

Softly luminous and dreamlike, tulips express the bliss of springtime.

Two pairs of matching earrings shown in the photos are found on this page and on this page.

­­­Note from Shelley: Molded glass flowers began as experimental elements in small factories of Czechoslovakia in the 1930s. Intervening war years either suspended or forever closed most producers of decorative glass arts. Then, after WWII, several workshops sputtered alive again, turning out beads and jewelry elements with artistic forms and finishes. Post war fashion took a dramatic turn from structured suits to light feminine silhouettes. Floral print silk dresses and jewelry were the rage. At the time, during the 1940s, my great Aunt Etta and her best friend Ann had a ready-to-wear "frock shop" in the Chicago Loop. Their tiny shop featured print silk dresses and floral jewelry to accessorize them. Decades later, she still had a few favorite "numbers" from the AnnEtte dress shop, including glass tulip earrings which delighted the eyes of 8 year old me. It is from that inspiration that my contemporary tulip ensemble originated.
