Fabulously beautiful strand of ancient beads from Djenne, Mali and other parts of the ancient Islamic world. The three center King Beads are quite nice, as are the other millifiori beads sprinkled throughout the necklace.
Necklace | Found along the trade route passing from Europe through northern Africa, these ancient Roman glass beads are a treasure! The beads vary in size and shape and all show the beautiful pitting from being buried in the sand for centuries. Combined with sterling Indonesian beads, this is truly a timeless piece of jewelry | Nomad's Journey Designs | 195$
