Brown, black and gray beads make up the largest portion of this vintage 27 ½ inch necklace. There is a variety of round, square and disk shape beads. Scattered among them are 4mm painted plastic balls and a larger plastic bead at the very center of the necklace. The shells look as though they may be clam shell. The pieces in front are from the part of the shell where it is jointed, the top and the bottom together. The smaller rectangular pieces look like they were taken from the outer edge of the clam shell.

The carved animals, elephant and leopard, are my favorite part of this necklace, but, alas, I could not take the necklace apart just to get to the animals.

This necklace is finished with a hook and eye clasp and is in very good vintage condition. It has the look of the “chief” (like in the movies). Originally $10.99

Do you like the look? Know anyone else who might like that “I am the Chief” look? This might just be the necklace for you.

Allow me to comment, if you would, on the clam shells.
I like the fact that food can be cooked on clam shells. They can go under a broiler. A large one can be used to used as a salad bowl or vegetable bowl. Years ago, I had shells for this purpose, but when I quit cooking, I gave them to one of my daughter-in-laws.
