For your consideration is this gorgeous pink shell fetish necklace. Having over 1000 beads, the time and devotion that went into the making of this piece is incredible. It is 3 strand and has 132 hand carved birds. The cones and clasp have tested as sterling silver. I believe it is circa 1960s and just a beautiful piece.
It is 3 strand and measures 34 and 1/2 inches in length.
It is in excellent condition and I see no damage to the shell, Some of the hand painted eyes on the birds are small than others but this is just how they were done.
