This bracelet showcases two Soviet-era glass buttons manufactured in a factory in the U.S.S.R. Both the factory and U.S.S.R. are now in history's dust bin. Yet, these buttons survived and found you.

The Soviet buttons flank a mid-century Czech glass cloud opal cabochon. Bohemian glassmakers were the first to develop methods for press-molding glass buttons in the early 19th century. They began with solid colored glass and then, as their skills grew, started producing multi-colored stones like this one to mimic gems like opals and tortoiseshells.

This opal is a testament to the enduring skills of Northern European glassmakers.

In this piece:

  • Two Soviet-era glass buttons with gold luster made in the U.S.S.R.
  • Vintage lampworked cloud opal glass cabochon made in Czechoslovakia, circa 1950
  • Tiny vintage Czech black glass flower button at the extender chain end
  • Two brass leaf stampings made today in the U.S.A. in vintage dies
  • Three brass-plated pewter settings are cast today in the U.S.A.
  • Antiqued brass chain
  • Length is 7" to 8 ½"
