Vintage carnelian stone beads A grade 1970's, vintage fossil stone 1980's

Top quality vintage carnelian stone beads in four different sizes and shapes are found in this hand knotted necklace which measures approximately 16 1/2" - an elegant choker. The silk cord has been hand dyed to match the beads.
Round 12mm carnelian beads in a deep cinnamon red are mixed with the same color bead but in a rare abacus shape - a shape we had custom cut for us in Hong Kong for a design I was doing for the Smithsonian's mail order catalog. Additional oval shaped carnelian in a lighter salmon color and referred to as ' goldfish' when I purchased them, have also been included as well as one incredible hand carved carnelian focal bead measuring 16mm.
This larger center bead has been carved with the Chinese eternity symbol on it.

Vintage fossil stone beads from the 1980's and vintage shiny African brass abacus spacers make up the rest of this necklace which has been finished with a Bali gold vermeil toggle clasp.
Shipping costs include insurance within the US and this necklace will arrive in a vintage embroidered silk purse all ready for gift giving.
