Ancient Amazonite, Carnelian, Brass & Ethiopian Cross

If you crave tribal arts, you will love this necklace made from many old and ancient beads. The Amazonite beads are hundreds of years old from Afghanistan and the Ethiopian Cross and brass round and flanged beads are also very old from Africa. The brass ones especially have a character and charm in their imperfect but good design and stand out as something that might have been around for more than 100 years. There is no way to tell exactly how old some of these beads are, but most are easily 100 years old, and the Amazonite are even older. The necklace also has tiny dark spacers that are used in stringing trade bead necklaces. The only things that are not very old are the small orange glass beads and the unusual leaf-design clasp. The necklace is 30" long and the cross adds another 3". This extraordinary necklace was designed by Linda Summers.
