Product description:In the ancient world beads played a major role in almost every aspect of society and can be traced back to 2000 BC. When Europeans discovered these gorgeous beads they became even more valuable as a tool for trading. I found these beautiful blue mud beads in a obscure marketplace and loved the muted sky color. The colorful decorated beads are little works of art. I strung the beads on wire and then added lapis lazuli, rust colored wood beads, a big slice of amber and a small faceted yellow jade bead. I adorned the 18 beaded strands of the necklace with colorful accents and added an old replica Chinese coin with a circle of lapis. A little coin is part of the loop closure and another small coin is on one side of the necklace. Length is 21". One only.
