I used two old necklaces from the 1930's to create this simple and elegant beauty.
The necklace is 22" long.The large center bead is hand-carved bone with a pattern of peonies and leaves. The body of the necklace includes pierced lattice graduated bone beads with a star or snowflake pattern. The upper sides of the necklace have simple round hand-carved bone beads - all are a bit irregular, as they were made by hand, not machine. The cream-colored bone beads are accented by matte black glass spacers.
I retained the old barrel clasp from one necklace. It works well and shows very little wear.
This simple beauty comes in an embroidered black silk pouch.
