Combining great graphics and vintage ephemera, this talisman necklace features a prayer tube type amulet. The metal tube is covered with a vintage (original) car check claim ticket that gives this piece it’s perfect graphic element and there is a (original) vintage cancelled postage stamp in shades of periwinkle blue. This tube is capped with a vintage turkoman button and metal disk and bead on the bottom. (Please note this tube does not open. The good energy and the pleasure of making this piece is sealed within this .)

The amulet hangs from a piece of vintage chain that has two brass heshi beads and a carved ivory bone bead. This necklace closes with a handmade hook type clasp.
From the amulet hangs a pebble found on the beach that was gathered from my morning walks and this drilled stone dangles lightly from thin wire with two tiny metal beads.

The necklace measures 20 1/2" from clasp to ring; this measurement does not include the amulet. The focus or amulet measures 8" long from top of ring to bottom of the beach pebble.
This necklace can be worn with the clasp on the left or the right side of the neck depending on if you would like more of the postage stamp showing or more of the claim ticket. (see photos for example)

All elements of this necklace have been finished with a jewelry grade wax resin mixture to seal and protect the patina. The paper elements have been sealed with polyurethane and then waxed. This part can be wiped and cleaned but should not be soaked in water because after all it is paper on metal even though it has been water proofed.
