Ancient Beads "Earthy Ochres" with "Spindle Whorl"

Sorry, this charming necklace is no longer available.

A range of Old, Antique and Ancient stone, and possibly some glass beads, in a range of rusty red and golden ochres.

Featuring an Ancient “Spindle Whorl”, (the weight at the base of a wooden spindle, used to increase the spin, during the spinning of cotton or wool) which could either be ceramic or turned stone, it has a very fine texture.

I’ve mixed them with small, fairly plain sterling silver beads, and a matching silver fob, from Indonesia and Thailand, these are at the very back, not visible from the front, which is just pure “stones”.

For durability, I thread on strong Tiger Tail, but don’t scrunch it up, or it will kink.
Abuse it and it will stretch, so considering their age, a bit of repect would enhance their beauty.

Once again, beads can outlast the Civilizations, Kingdoms and Empires that wear them surviving millennia until they resurface again, for us to wear and appreciate.

I hope you enjoy wearing them, as I’ve had a close look at them, and have enjoyed handling them.
