 Vintage Necklaces from the Czech Republic
On a recent trip to the Czech Republic I found a stash of vintage necklaces made sometime between the two world wars. At that time the bead/jewelry industry was very much a home based cottage industry. The bead companies sent a design and a supply of beads to the home worker requesting X amount of finished pieces. The home worker would make up all the beads usually getting X amount of finished product plus several more. Usually the company would only buy the original X amount, which meant that the home worker got to keep the extra finished items to do with as they pleased. Many times these finished pieces ended up in basements or attics waiting for someone else in the family to deal with in later years. Such is the case with the stash that I purchased.
