24" Necklace of carved Turkish meerschaum beads and matching earrings.

The original necklace was purchased in Turkey,circa 1960. When we received it, the clasp was broken, and the necklace held together by a knot. It has been restrung on flexible beading wire by a local jewelry maker, retaining the original bead placement, including the tiny white spun glass spacers. We chose a filigree clasp, matching the original style.

The jeweler suggested using two of the beads to make earrings. These were made with sterling rosette ear wires and tiny sterling beads. The ear wires are marked 925 on the reverse.

Meerschaum is a very light mineral, soft and carvable when newly mined. It hardens and darkens a bit with age. This necklace shows little, if any signs of wear. It has been carefully stored and handled, and is almost perfectly white.
