German Vintage Glass / 14k gold fill findings

Handmade by I. Ronni Kappos, this jewelry is composed of vintage German glass and gold-filled findings. The glass comes from the famed, but long-defunct German glass-works in the Sudetenland region of Bohemia. The molds and chemical pigments used in pre-war glass production from this region are no longer available, which is why so many of the shapes and hues are very unusual. Since these beads were made in the 1920s and 1930s, they are rare and highly collectible. This makes all of her designs limited editions.

Description

 

I. Ronni Kappos jewelry is handmade from an evolving collection of vintage German glass. The beads were cast in the 1920’s, 30’s and 40’s by craftsman whose meticulous techniques yielded unusual colors and shapes. Some of the rarer stock was dipped in 24 karat gold and then shaved at the time to create an elegant gold trim around the bead.

Ronni’s design approach begins with a tremendous devotion to her materials. She values their history, but also designs with an eye for clean, modern shapes. Variations in the beads’ color, or even slight imperfections, also add character to the pieces. Most of Ronni’s jewelry is strung on nylon cord with 14 karat gold filled findings.
