On this enchanting necklace and earrings, satin glass tulips bloom from the stems and leaves of eight curvilinear 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 travels in each sculptured flower. Finest quality 6mm Czech pearls are individually linked as the neck chain, echoed by seed pearl accents among the tulips. Burnished bronze finish. Made in our Los Angeles studios. Signed Sweet Romance USA. Necklace: 19" long. Earrings: 1" L x 3/8" W
Softly luminous and dreamlike, tulips express the bliss of springtime. Tulips represent joy, elegance and worthiness. Just after WWII, when the fashion scene changed dramatically to light, feminine silhouettes, floral print silk dresses and jewelry were the rage. European glass workshops sputtered alive again, turning out beads and jewelry elements with artistic forms and finishes. My tulip necklace recalls that era and introduces a fresh angle to contemporary fashion.
