This tribal necklace is 14” long (35.5cm) with extra 3” chain. The ribbon is 1” high (2.5cm). The kuchi pendant 1” x 1.5” (2.5cm x 3.8cm), made of brassy mixed metal alloy with a green stone. Some of the beads have significant wear and tear on them, some have a heavy patina, and others are cracked giving the strands of heishee beads a staggered appearance. Everything is sewn on by hand, never glued, so it can withstand years of abuse.

I’ve had these square metal beads for over 20 years, and they were vintage then. They’ve had many different incarnations, many different tales to tell. They even had a couple of new chapters in the past few days before listing. I thought the necklace was complete with just the metal elements, then I happened to lay it down on a ribbon and thought it looked lovely. There are 2 layers of this rusty-red colored satin ribbon, with a thin layer of felt between them to hold up the weight of the metal.
