Carved Bone Leaf and Dzi Etched Brown Eye Agate Antique Brass Necklace
Ancient and tribal in appearance these modern etched brown eye agate dzi beads are artistic and unique. The detail and colors will range from a dark brown to an amber brown color and you will clearly see the circular eye pattern. I have paired these wonderful semi-precious gemstones with white bone heishi spacers and antique brass bead caps and rondelles. The focal is a wonderfully carved bone leaf that shows great detail in the lines. This necklace is finished off with an antique brass Anna toggle produced by TierraCast here in the United States.
Dzi beads were dated back to 2000 to 1000 years BC in India. Fear of the "evil eye" was taken very seriously by these people, so whoever made the dzi created talismans with "eyes" on them as a "fight fire with fire" form of protection. You will notice that these modern dzi beads still have the circular eyes. Even with the original dzi beads agate was the base stone used, even with today's dzi beads. Lines and shapes were added using ancient methods that are still not completely understood, possibly including darkening with plant sugars and heat, bleaching and white line etching with natron, and protecting certain areas with grease, clay, wax, or a similar substance. A nice dzi must be of good quality agate, and the cutting, drilling, and decorating takes many days.
The necklace is 19 inches in length and the bone pendant adds an additional 2 1/4 inch drop.
Comes packaged in a complimentary jewelry pouch. As an added bonus, I will include a complimentary pair of matching earrings using the etched dzi agate on niobium hypoallergenic ear wires.
