When I first came across this antique Victorian, polished bone parasol handle, I thought it would make an intriguing centrepiece for a necklace. Its complex design is difficult to decipher, but I can imagine a gloved hand holding the handle, supporting a pretty parasol. It is quite long, at 4 inches, while the handle part comes out at 1 ½ inches wide.

It is combined with a vintage Chinese marbleized glass bead (14 mm) and a vintage, handmade, traditional Afghan gold plated bead 8.5 mm). Small 3 mm onyx beads form the look to attach the pendant to the necklace.

Two large, traditionally crafted Afghan beads (17 mm) support the hanging pendant, while, on either side are two antique Victorian bone beads (12.5 mm). This then follows, on both sides, a rhythmic pattern of cubes of natural mat onyx beads (12.5 mm), antique carved calcified jade barrels (11mm by 16 mm), natural mat onyx beads (13.8 mm) and long, openwork natural mat onyx cylinders ( 1 ¼ inches long by 13 mm wide).

I have used a gold on silver toggle clasp. Toggle clasps are easy to use and secure. My silver name label is attached at the clasp

The necklace is 19 inches long with a 5 ¼ inch pendant drop.
