The antique carved bone pendant is a complex, quite stunning design. Four rectangles are linked by a rope, all hand carved in polished bone. It is 1 ¾ inches across (4.5 cm) and 6 mm deep.
It hangs on 6 mm bone beads which hang on a necklace of natural smoky quartz.
The smoky quartz alternates in tone and size, from a darker brown, (19 mm x 15 mm), to a paler, smoky quartz of 13 mm x 15 mm.
Two carved smoky quartz melon beads (14 mm) are in the middle of the necklace.
Two antique, polished bone beads (14 mm) echo the pendant. And two carved antique bone beads (16 mm) repeat the creamy colour,
There are four handmade, vintage, traditional Afghan melon beads
(15 mm), which were created by using 18ct gold on silver on hardened resin, a technique learned from the craftsmen who came to Afghanistan in 330 BC, with Alexander the Great.
A 14ct gold vermeil toggle clasp has been used because toggle clasps are easy to use and secure. My silver name label is attached at the clasp.
The necklaces come, like all my necklaces, with its own colour co-ordinated silk brocaded pouch bag, made by a Shanghai tailor.
The necklace is 18 inches long (45.5 cm) with a 2 inch pendant drop (5 cm).
