A row of ?Venitian glass beads with roses and forget-me-nots, goldstone glass (adventurine glass) decoration on a turquise glass bead.  Most likely made in Venice but could have been made elsewhere (Thuringia or Bohemia).  Not sure of the date.  The quality is reasonable .  Has attractive bead caps in gilt metal and small spacer beads.  Not sure if the catch is original - could be later.  It is very difficult to date these beads unless they are of exceptional quality.  They are still hand making beads in Venice today - and these are being copied in places like India and China.  (I do not think these are contemporary though!)   Wish I could be more specific!  Thanks to Sibyle Jargstorf's books - Schiffer.  Length approx 22 inches.  Condition good.
