Whoever made this garland (I have quite a few other strands for sale) used a LOT of vintage necklaces, many similar or the same, to create a lot of garland! It is folk art, and one-of-a-kind - I have never seen any others made like this. Each strand is very slightly different, and they are slightly different lengths (this strand is 11.5 feet).
There are many beads that are the same on each strand, and the colors and bead sizes are all pretty much the same, so all the strands that I have for sale go really well together. This listing has multiples, as there are several stands that are 11.5 feet, even though they are very slightly different.
The garland is gorgeous, made from pearly, iridescent necklace beads. There are a few crystal beads, and a few that look like marble or jade, as well as some that are brightly colored, and many that are pastel. They would be really amazing on a Christmas tree. The garland beads are in great condition - many have aged to a lovely patina (the aged look things get over time).
I have run out of space, so now it's time for the garland go to a new home! The garland is quite heavy - the beads are the old heavy ones, not the new plastic ones. All of the strands are very similar and display really well together, in shades of off white to pastels, with a few brighter beads mixed in.
