Elizabethan style necklace created with a range of motifs from seed beads, Swarovski crystals and Czech  pressed glass beads. Court jewellery from the Elizabethan period would of course been made from genuine gold, rubies, and emeralds. As shown in the Cheapside Hoard, Elizabethan craftsmen would also fashion chains using enamel on precious metal, making for beautiful but delicate ropes to suspend other items from, or as decoration in themselves  Since many of these would actually be pinned to garments, they would not need to be as robust as the  chains we are used to. Here pressed glass beads are used to echo those enamelled chains. The necklace is 17' long and is finished with some some gold plated sterling silver chain and toggle clasp.
