The beads of the necklace are mainly tourmaline, but also freshwater pearls, fluorite, glassbeads, rock crystal and a piece of rose quartz. The etched text of the patinated copper focal plate is JOY BLESSING.

Length 41,5 cm, the plate with beaded charms 3,6 x 6 cm.

The runic inscription on the focal plate was originally written on two bow brooches found in Hungary and dated to 6th century. The original inscriptions were Godahi(l)d (w)unja (Godahild, joy), and Arsiboda segun (Arsiboda, blessing). The inscriptions were probably meant to bring joy and blessing to their owners, the named women. I left here the names out and etched only "JOY, BLESSING". The brooches were made by the Germanic people, Lombards who lived in Hungary at this time. Later they invaded Lombardy, Italy. The word "blessing" may sound like Christian, but it might originally be pagan as well.
