On offer here is a necklace of ancient deep teal and green glass beads called Jatim beads - a word that is short for Jawa Timor or East Java which is where such beads have been excavated. They were made during a period spanning the 5th and 8th centuries.

The particular beads on this necklace were carefully matched from several strands. They were graded, paired with hand made vintage Bali silver spacers and hand knotted into a nylon cord to protect and enhance the subtle beauty of this ancient glass.

The beads are in excellent (ancient) condition. There is pitting and scarring and some minor chipping on the bead surfaces

All beads were purchase in Indonesia during a period between 1992 and 1996 while I was living in Malaysia and traveling quite a bit.

This necklace is 31" long. It is comprised of 39 beads which graduate in size from 1.2cm to 1.9cm in diameter.
