|Working with old elements, Linda Summers has assembled a lovely necklace with an Afghan lapis pendant in the center. The beads all have many different origins and characteristics: faceted carnelian, Prosser Blue Trade Beads, Roman glass, silver Bali, and Chinese balls make up the “old” necklace. This is an unusual piece of jewelry with extraordinary Egyptian tiny metal wire “bows” chain at the end of the necklace, with a sterling loop and toggle fastener. The lapis on the vintage pendant is surrounded by metal that is probably coin silver. The necklace is 22" long. Owning such an eclectic piece as this will bring a lot of pleasure and comments.|
