Very unusual hand made vintage lariat necklace with pink and blue glass seed beads and two shades of faux pearls wrapped in a torsade form, wired with dark silvertone cast metal terminals set at one end with colorless rhinestones and at the other end with fuschia pink rhinestones. Each side of the torsade is wrapped in a sort of netting of thread which matches the color of the glass beads. 1960s, probably French, based on the wired construction, the metal terminals, and the wrapped torsade style. Also probably a one off piece, perhaps for a one time use such as a runway show. Total length is 33 inches. Wearable length is about 24 inches. The ends are 1 inch in diameter. Very good condition with some slight losses to some of the faux pearls not noticeable at a short distance. Display form is life size. Photos enlarged to show detail.
