Rosary Chain Necklace Earthy Beads Vintage Pendant
I made this rosary chain necklace using ceramic gold-flake mala, light green jasper, and fire-polished crystal beads. Each link was made using a graphite-tone copper wire. The color of the beads compliments the 4" vintage tassel from Northern Afghanistan. There are many ethnic Turkmen living throughout Afghanistan. I like to use the items in my shop as jewelry components. The tassel was once part of a Turkmen hair tassel. The inner circumference is 25". There is no clasp or fastener. The spikes on the tassel are softened by the sparkle and luster of the beads. This has an earthy, warm feel when worn.
