Shipping to United States: Free

*DESCRIPTION: From my personal collection comes a very rare find.
Created from genuine Bakelite orb-shaped beads, this necklace was signed by Kenneth Lane (KJL).
Then marbled beads are stunning & substantial.
There are three HUGE (~26 mm each) golden red beads with wine End-of-the-Day marbling.
The "smallest" beads are a whopping 22 mm!
The three beads are flanked by very unique koi fish end caps.
The end caps have crystal eyes & are texturized.
(I've never seen end caps like this.)

Flanking the golden orange beads are more wine beads with custard swirls.
On either side of these beads are large, gold-tone ball findings.
The beads are strung on multi-strand black thread.
The closure is a classic KJL "S" clasp.

Beautfiul, collectible piece.


(All my Bakelite is authenticated using Simichrome Polish.)
