Iron-Age Bangle with twisted cables and dotted surface decoration
Iron-age cobalt glass bangles with twisted cables and surface decoration of dots
Although they are commonly called 'bangles' or 'armlets' many of the Iron age large-hole beads of this type are not of a size to be worn as a piece of jewellery. Of course, this doesn't make them any less beautiful, and there is some possibility that they were worn suspended as pendants.
Based on types from the continent, they have blue and white twisted glass cables embellished by white dots of glass.
The inner diameter is approximately 20-22mm but each one varies as they are handmade individually.
