Art Nouveau Style Bronze Lace Necklace with Goldstone Bead
This gorgeous piece of necklace is perfect for those who like to wear small, delicate jewellery! The hand cast bronze piece is an intricate lace pattern (designed by the artist) from there a copper bead and a goldstone sphere hangs down. The long shape of the pendant emphasizes the cleavage while it's still a barely prominent, fine jewellery (the pendant is 4.5 cm = 1.8 inches long).
The pendant hangs on a 41 cm = 16.10 inches long double wire copper cord decorated with 4 sphere and 2 tube beads.
Goldstone is a man-made glass that has copper flecks suspended in it. This gives the stone the illusion of sparkle. It is usually made up of Gypsum and Feldspar, and often comes in reddish brown color. It’s been told that a bunch of alchemist monks trying to make gold were the first people who created Goldstone. In the process, copper shavings were accidentally knocked over into a pot of molten glass, creating the first piece!
Goldstone is historically known as Aventurine Glass, from the Italian word ‘avventurina’, which means ‘accidental’, derived from the root word ‘avventura’, which means ‘by chance, luck, or risk’.
It’s also known by the name Stellaria, Gold Star Glass, Gold Flux, Monkgold, and Monk’s Stone.
