Mosaic Bone Brass Pendant Necklace 25 strands Micro Beads Vintage Jewelry
• Materials: bone, brass, micro-beads
• Maker: unknown
• Approximate Year: c1960s
• Size: 22", 2.25" x 1.5"
This amazing necklace has a fine bone mosaic pendant, mounted in brass, suspended from 25 strands of tiny black micro-beads. There are also two beige 15 mm glass beads with a dark brown glazed pattern on them. The necklace is 22" long, measuring across the pendant, and the pendant measures 2-1/4 x 1-1/2" not including the bales. The bead holders are spiraled wires, with a hook clasp. One of the bales looks like it may have been re-soldered on the back in the past, but it is very secure, and otherwise the necklace is in very good vintage condition. The necklace is relatively heavy, at 5.6 ounces (160 gms), so you will know you're wearing it. What a treasure, though!
