This necklace is comprised of ancient beads that were purchased in Malaysia and Indonesia between 1992 and 1996. It is 17" long. All of the silver beads were made to order in Bali in the 90's.

The glass beads are ancient and fall into the category of "Jatim" (short for Java/Timor) beads. They were made in East Java, Indonesia between the 3rd and 7th centuries and likely excavated sometime in the 80s.

The ancient beads show signs of their age with some wearing in the perforations, small chips, pits and evident striations, all of which contribute to the beauty of the piece.

The last picture depicts the necklace with an extending piece. It makes the necklace more versatile with collared shirts and turtleneck sweaters and can be found under a separate listing, or made to measure as a custom item.
