Swag Bagette

Private collection
The Swag Bagette, is probably the most elegant of the Bagette series. It is worked in deep purples, coppers, and gun-metal grey (from hematite). The twirled rounds in the fringe are vintage German glass and have an amazing depth of color and texture. They are one of my favorites of all my vintage beads. I think it measured somewhere in the neighborhood of 1-1 1/2" wide by 3" long, plus the fringe added about 2". The beaded hematite chain was long so the necklace would lay flat when worn.
