    • Originally, I made a necklace like this for myself. But because I had so many complements on this winning combination, I decided to make it for others.

     

    • First, there are the three, big, free form, natural amber shapes, in a whisky colour.  In themselves, the amber pieces are large, rich and frankly, wonderful. I can never extol amber enough.  Each piece measures 1 ¾” long (4cm) x 1 ½” wide (3.5cm) and 17mm deep.  But they are a natural shape, so each is individual.

     

    • The amber is flanked by antique, 18k gold-on-silver-on hardened resin beads from Afghanistan. These etched beads are made with a traditional technique, dating back to Alexander the Great, when the Greeks, (330 BC) invaded Afghanistan, bringing their craftsmen with them.  One of their skills was working in 18K gold, using sheet gold and crafting it onto hardened resin, and then decorating it.  The beads vary in size from 18mm to 24mm.

     

    • Two vintage Chinese brass coins separate the gold beads from the large, polished pebbles of soft blue amazonite. These are approximately 1 ¾” long x 1 ½” wide x 20mm deep.

     

    • Two flat amazonite discs (23mm) flank the next amber pieces.

     

    • The amber is contrasted with hand carved bone, basket designed beads (23mm), which then lead to the final large, gold Afghan beads (24mm).

     

    • The last part of the necklace is made up of slivers of natural, whisky coloured, amber beads.

     

    • I have used a handmade 14k gold vermeil toggle clasp.  Toggle clasps are easy to use and secure. My silver name label is attached at the clasp.

     

    • The necklace comes, like all my necklaces, with its own colour coordinated silk brocaded pouch bag, made by a Shanghai tailor.

     

    • The necklace measures 19” long (48.5cm).
