Three big fragments of ancient glass take center stage in this bracelet. These pieces were found at an excavation site in Afghanistan. The site dates from 100 - 200 B.C. - YES, I did say B.C.!! They were found in what appears to be an outdoor marketplace. These pieces could have been part of an urn, or vessel or decorative object. We will never know but it's fun to imagine the past life of these pieces, and it's incredible to think how old these fragments are. Great patina on the glass with some iridescence on each. Big bronze links and closure with very fire labradorite beads that are wired with sterling, one to the next. Extraordinary piece!
