This necklace is handmade by Tales of the Dragon studios. It incorporates large graduated rondels of an exquisite green turquoise with a beautiful brown-black veined spiderweb matrix and seven fine silver beads. Five of the silver beads are about 75 years old and were found at a Himalayan Bazaar. Two of the bicone beads are fine silver 99% pure, they are stamped and reminiscent of beads found in necklaces from the Southwest but these two beads are new from the Hill tribes of Thailand. This necklace closes with a heavy sterling silver S hook and 2 large solid soldered shut jump rings.
