This can only be an antique Victorian jet carved pendant, or, as it happens, a brooch, which I had altered to a pendant. With its floral tribute, it was originally intended to be a mourning brooch.. But today, it can simply be worn as a stunning black pendant (1 ½ inches long and 1 inch wide).

It hangs from a long necklace of natural rock crystal slices (21.5 mm and 7.7 mm deep), coconut discs, two cranberry dyed, carved bamboo coral beads (13.5 mm) and traditionally made, vintage silver on hardened resin beads (14mm) from Afghanistan.
Like the gold Afghan beads, these are crafted in the same manner, taking sheets of pure silver and forming them over hardened resin, a technique the Afghans have perfected over centuries. They then emboss or etch the silver, as with these gadrooned beads.

I have used a silver toggle clasp, handmade by the Karen hill tribes in Thailand.. Toggle clasps are easy to use and secure. My silver name label is attached at the clasp.

The necklace comes, like all my necklaces, with it's own colour co-ordinated silk brocaded pouch bag, made by the Shanghai tailor.

The necklace is 22 inches long with a 2 inch pendant drop.
