This is a stunning long necklace featuring an antique silver pendant and an emerald stone .
The large pendant is old silver (approx 50-150 years old) and has been made and worn by the tribal people of Rajasthan in Northern India. It has been handmade and is extremely pure solid fine silver (around 96%). The small beads at the bottom of the pendant are fixed in a way that they move around. I travel to Rajasthan to buy these old silver pieces, which are becoming quite hard to find these days.
The rest of the necklace is also solid fine silver. These beads are also handmade, by the tribal people who live between Burma and Thailand - I also travel to buy beads directly from them.
The 2 tiny finsihing beads are sterling silver.
The stone is a natural crude emerald which has been faceted to catch the light.
The necklace is 25 " long (64cm).
I am the designer of this necklace and I have made it with my own hands. I have been making my living exclusively from designing and making jewellery for the last 9 years. I travel every year to seek out old and tribal silver from Asia and India along with semi-precious stones. Back at home in Brighton, England, I make these loose pieces up into beautiful and unusual jewellery.
Every item will be sent beautifully packaged in a cotton gift bag made especially for me by a women's self help group in India.
