What is Roman glass? It’s ancient glass (up to 2,000 years old), discovered in archaeological excavation sites in Israel + other Mediterranean countries (our beads come from ancient glass found in Afghanistan). There are a lot of Roman glass pieces in the world, and a full cup or other object often sells for thousands. But many of these items are found in fragments, so they’re made into beads – and affordable for us to make into jewelry!
The Roman glass beads are approximately 1/2" wide - but vary as all are different. Necklaces are 17.5" when on the last loop on the extender chain. The smaller seed beads that make up the rest of the necklace are premium-quality Japanese glass. The lobster clasp and extender chains are sterling silver.
Roman glass beads may have inclusions and unique patinas by mineral deposits where the glass lay buried. This makes them all the more special and one of a kinds!
M, N, O, and P are already finished and are as marked in the photos, but select a different necklace color if you like those Roman glass beads and want the necklace color swapped.
O&P have all silver colored beads, and M&N have the beige/silver color option.
