Vintage Bead Necklace with Turquoise Pendant

says - "This vintage necklace has long melon beads and round bench beads.
Bench beads are partially manufactured and partially hand made. Usually the halves
are machine cut and the silversmith solders the two halves together. Sometimes
bench beads are left with a protruding seam, as with this necklace, and in other
cases the seam is sanded down and polished smooth. Then the beads are strung by
or more details.
