I don't know much about beads, so I don't know what to call all of the in thi ne4cklace. They are all glass, so there is enough weight to make them lie nicely around the neck. There are false pearls,rounmd copper colored beads, and those elongated foiled ones, and those are the ones I think probably have a name, but I don't know what it is. The strand is 20" long and has an old barrel clasp. It is hand Knotted on silk thread, and there are tiny copper colored rondelles between each bead. In a necklace this old, if I were to wanted to wear it often, I would probably have it restrung, but it is fine the way it is. It really is lovely and in good condition.
