Redesigned one of a kind pieces using antique materials. 

No. 211

STORY: 

Neiger pieces are arguably Czechoslovakia's most sought after glass jewellery designs of the 20th century. Max and Norbert Neiger started their jewellery making business in the basement of their family home in 1900. Their designs reached their peak in the Art Deco period with their famous scarab beads following the discovery of King Tut's tomb in 1922. Neiger brothers pieces are extremely sought after given the jewellery company did not survive WW2. 

This pair of 1920s hand-carved Neiger glass scarabs were rescued and redesigned into a stunning pair of drop earrings.

The rich mustard yellow scarab beads have been strung from oxidised silver chains and set onto new oxidised silver french hooks.
