The Silver Female Warrior
Vintage Crystal Necklace
Gail Be, American, United States, 2002
Vintage Light Swarovski Crystal, Metal Findings, Accuflex
Be spent over 13 years to assemble the 10 different style vintage beads to create this masterpiece. The beads great size make this a very rare find. Be acquired the beads from several different private and corporate collections throughout Europe and the United States.
The vintage Swarovski crystal beads are in pristine condition and were manufactured in Austria between 1920 - 1938 and 1945 - 1954. To prove their authenticity, Be has the honor of taking them directly from their original packages.
This necklace is amazing and it is absolutely stunningly beautiful. Considering I don’t solder, draw or figure mathematical calculations when I create, this piece took a long time to design—and it looks it. I call it the Warrior because she is strong, powerful and very feminine. This is what I call a STATEMENT piece and you can be guaranteed there will be NO other necklace like this one. The beads are very rare because of their great size and the incredible number of different shapes I have been able to assemble over the years. I am proud to say I truly feel this necklace is worthy of the magnitude of these beautiful beads. They are faceted silver that sparkle like disco balls around your face and can be seen across the largest ballroom. I feel like this final creation is like a great sward to be wielded by a highly skilled Female Warrior. It would be beast to wear it with and equally “magnificent suit of Armour.
