This pendant reminds me of a boy scout patch or Scottish emblem, simplified to elegant lines. Wear it with a thick silver chain, black leather or use it as a centerpiece in a beaded necklace.

The piece is completely hand constructed. It does show wear, both on the front and in back. A thin layer of gold leaf outlines the carnelian stone.

The Pashtun are the largest ethnic majority of Afghanistan and this is one of their jewelry samples. Like their needlework, they are drawn to organic shapes that reflect nature.

Estimated age: 20 years +

1.12" wide x 1.5" long
Metric: 3 cm wide x 4 cm long
