Beautiful Blue Lapis Lazuli a favorite of the Romans and Egyptians. Lapis was so revered, it is often found among the burial goods with Egyptian mummies.
This necklace is made of tiny handmade silver beads I bought 20 years ago, a group of 3 Ancient Lapis mummy beads from Egypt, and as the centerpiece, a beautiful hand carved curved Ancient Lapis Bead. The beads are all from my personal collection. All hand knotted on blue silk with a silver hook clasp from the 1980's.
As with all of the pieces from the Ancient Influences Collection, there is a limited quantity of these materials and no 2 are ever exactly alike.
Measurements: 20.5" long. Center Lapis 23.4mm x 7.4mm, small Lapis beads 4.1mm to 2.9mm.
All of the items in this collection are made using vintage bits & pieces and small imperfections are to be considered part of their charm.
