Absolutely natural, carved by hand, organic. Turquoise nugget beads necklace, 22! Each bead is different in its color, and its carving.
Carving is an oval with SHOU (LONGEVITY). As you can see, the carving is not perfect, but. Totally charming for its age. The carving is 22mm long by 17mm.
Make me a reasonable offer and it's yours. After 40 years of designing jewelry for museums and collecting beads. I take the liberty of redesigning old pieces, using ancient and vintage. Beads in the Chinese styles of design.
Where I feel that certain modern components will enhance, enrich and strengthen. The necklace, I go ahead and do it.
I will not claim that a necklace is pre-owned when it's not. Most old and ancient necklaces are so fragile and loose, that. One cannot wear them without risking breakage, not to mention that they don't look. Pictures are part of the description.I have been designing for the most estimable museums and catalogs for many years. Among them are The Smithsonian, The Met, Sundance catalog and many many more. Now you can find many of the samples used for these companies, right here in my store, for a fraction of their retail prices. Also note that when we say vintage we refer to age, not condition.
