The fabulously funky coral and chocolate swirled beads were made in Japan in the late 1940s under the famous 'Cherry Brand' label (very high quality).
The dainty little stamped brass bead caps came with the beads, so I'm assuming they're of the same vintage; and I've used other findings to match.
I've added some contemporary 8mm chocolate brown high lustre glass pearls.
The hook and extender closure gives the necklace a working length of from 16-1/2" to 18-1/2".
The matching earrings dangle about 2-3/4" from the tops of their 14 kt. gold fill French hooks (note that I've embellished the hooks with the tiniest of the coral beads).
It's another innovative design from SPARKLE PLENTY.
