Beautiful blue lapis lazuli...a favorite of the Romans and Egyptians. Lapis was so revered, it is often found among the burial goods of Egyptian mummies.
This necklace is made of chunky antique 980 grade silver beads paired with a grouping of ancient lapis disc and barrel beads. They are hand knotted on dark blue silk with a decorative sterling silver toggle clasp. The beads are all from my personal collection.
As with all of the pieces from the Ancient Influences Collection, there is a limited quantity of these materials and no two are ever exactly alike.
Details.....The necklace is 18" long. The lapis beads are roughly 8mm wide and between 4mm to 10mm long. The silver beads measure 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.
Item number a1104.
