This incredibly unusual one-of-a-kind intricately black and white hand-woven seed bead necklace has the phrase "and how great the virtue and the art to live on little with a cheerful heart" and is dated 1832. Unfortunately, it is missing a few words at the beginning, but who cares - it's one of the most fabulous pieces I've ever owned. It has all of the Victorian symbols of the time - anchor, cross, heart, diamond, and key, along with maybe a cat or dog. This incredible 40.0 inches long and 0.25 inch wide, 184 year-old heirloom is something that should be shared with your family and passed down to your children for generations to come.
Naturally eco-friendly and green, antiques are the ultimate in helping the environment.
