This is a wonderful vintage beaded necklace made entirely of hand carved bone beads. The beads are shaped into little tulips and even have a hidden screw clasp. Just imagine the time and effort that has gone into making this beautiful accessory! With the recent full-ban of ivory, many people are turning to bone as an alternative to the look of elegant craftsmanship. Most carved bone comes from oxen and many from the Middle East. I am unsure of this necklaces origin but it is definitely mid- century.
