Opulent multi-strand beaded necklace featuring a large, decorated Japanese netsuke bead monkey. This glorious necklace was artistically designed using a wide range of beautiful vintage beads, some semi-precious, some carved, some glass or brass, in a variety of shapes and sizes. The clasp button is treated wood. Orange is the theme here (not red) presented with lots of texture and dimension. This necklace has a relatively heavy weight.
Feast your eyes on this creatively worked piece, which is in excellent condition and surely one-of-a-kind. It measures 18” and drapes around the neck with the netsuke at the side.
