What an eye-catching piece. It looks heavy but at under 5 ounces is surprisingly light. 17 Blown hollow beads, some with a matt finish, some striped and some webbed with glass effects. Beads made by Olga Alianova. Strung with industrial springs sources in Italy. Finished with a sterling clasp.
These beads are relatively strong as they have been cooled in a kiln in increase their durability. If you're going to drop them on the floor, they will break, maybe. They are strong enough to take normal everyday wear and tear.
