Tribal choker is made of vintage ribbon in goldenrod, handsewn with Turkoman gilit plates, kuchi dangles with green glass stones and bells, and green talhakimt style glass beads. The central pendant is a vintage kuchi piece with malachite stonework. A black ribbon is included to tie the necklace in back. Choker is 13" long (33cm). Ribbon is 0.5" wide (1.25cm) and the pendant has a 3" (7.6cm) drop. Everything is sewn on by hand, never glued, so it can withstand years of abuse. You could also attach it to your tribal headpiece as a coronet across your forehead.

I chose the name Ceres (the Roman equivalent of Demeter, Greek Goddess of the grain and the Eleusinian Mysteries) because of the colors: the new green shoots and the ripened gold of the grain. This is a great, colorful and lightweight piece for summer.

All Merry Maenad items are made by hand in a smoke free home. Vintage fabrics and trims are always cleaned before I sew them, so there's no musty odor.
