To cheer you up - these red chili peppers are perfect for a smile. Leaves (3/4 inch) and peppers of one inch are glass and show no damage. Round beads appear to be painted wood or composite. Silver finished chain is adjustable from 24 inches to 21 - or less on smaller links. I believe this was a craft project and not terribly old as it has a lobster claw clasp. I have had it for years though.
