This unique and hand knotted necklace is comprised primarily of Venetian trade beads including two patterns of drawn, cased cane beads and 8 'watermelon' chevrons, also originally from Venice. All are 19th or early 20th century from the African trade. They were purchased in London in the 80's. Other beads include ancient terra cotta colored drawn glass beads called Indo-Pacific, or trade wind beads. These are very old (likely produced before the 12th century AD) and very widely distributed beads that were purchase in Indonesia between 1992-1996.
The sterling beads are all from Bali and purchased in the 90's. All are hand made with very fine granulated patterns

This necklace is basically a very rich looking choker, between 16" and 21" long. A matching extending piece is available in a separate listing to make it longer and a better fit around collars.
