This necklace is carefully crafted with the rare, ornamental, tribal antiquity "stipple" effect of a flower decorated pendant with round, charmed fringe. The metal used is typically called German Silver (a mixture of metal alloys), however this is of the finest quality and is most likely silver.
Because of the vibratory nature of bells/jingling charms they can be extremely effective form of spiritual cleansing and protection. Bells can ward off negativity and unwanted visitors. The vibrations from the bells will break up the negative and stagnant energy left hanging in the air. They move and jolt to life the stagnant and worn-out.
Jewelry was part of the Turkmen tribe women's dowry. These antiquities worn by nomadic women living in the mountains, possibly Bedouin people. Embellished jewelry was worn to define the prominence of these tribal women and or family.
Fair trade and refugee sourced this beautiful pendant, circular findings and filagree beads are juxtaposed against the small, richly colored, geometric jewels of sparkling garnets, emeralds, turquoise, and smokey quartz cascading into palm wood beads.
The Lake contains incredibly vibrant gems; shiny and polished and others classic, weathered and rutty from time. All bathed in rich jeweled tones colored from the earth. I've incorporated the seductively hued stones with beads of the finest variety. The beads are carefully chosen for their antiquity and craftsmanship of their makers. Please note minor flaws or imperfections may appear within these handcrafted beads or inclusions within the natural, raw gems. It's one aspect of their inherent beauty.
