VINTAGE AFGHANI NECKLACE EMBELLISHED WITH TRIBAL BEADS 38" LONG
This was also a necklace of my mother's that I added length to as well as additional embellishments to the pendant drop. This necklace was purchased in the 60s by a friend of my mother's who bought it while he was in the Peace Corps. I think it is probably quite a bit older than the 60s but I have no provenance on it. It is made from orange seed beads and large Turkoman silver (alloy I'm sure) beads. I added mala beads and turquoise to the 2" drop to give it a color pop and more dimensionality. I also added silver chain to the back to extend the length from 32" to 38". It's a stunning piece.
