Antique Bead Necklace
I’m off to Central Asia next week and decided that my usual necklace is too valuable for adventure travel. Thus I created a new one specifically for this trip. One of my goals is to buy more ancient beads and I need examples to show the merchants.
This necklace has a Bronze Age pendant–thogchag; from the Gobi Desert, approximately 500BC; a 2,500 BC ceramic bead from Balkh; Tibetan coral; Tibetan turquoise; Afghan agates and lapis lazuli; Etched carnelians from Taxila, 2,000 years old; Afghan turquoise, 2,000 BC; and Kazakh coral. If anyone is interested it is for sale–$2,500.00!
