Since early times glass has been very popular for jewelry and ornaments due to its translucent brilliance and rich coloration. Such objects were considered rare and costly, even more valuable than gold, and only the wealthy could afford them. This lovely bracelet dates to a time when the art of glassmaking was at its height. The gorgeous green alternates with short bands of light amber, studded with tiny beads for texture. The aqua shade is streaked with red and silver, which suddenly comes alive in the light. Its narrow size indicates it was made for a child. The pride in wearing such a delightful bracelet is exactly the same today as it was centuries ago! - (GF.0344)
