    • This handmade forest green silk/polyester band supports a hand carved natural grey agate butterfly (2 inches by 2 inches). The butterfly is a symbol of long life (surprisingly), love and affection. The pendant hangs on natural jade beads (5 mm) and vintage, traditionally made Afghan beads (13.5 mm). They are crafted of gold on silver on hardened resin using classical techniques of Afghanistan.
    • The Afghani have been crafting gold for centuries. When Alexander the Great came to Afghanistan his people brought many skills, one of which was working in gold. Like the Romans centuries later, a yellow 18 ct gold was used. One of the techniques used was to take sheet gold and work it onto hardened resin and then decorate it. With these beads the 18 ct gold has been plated over silver and then over the resin and carved with gadroons. For me, this handiwork and the yellow gold colour gives the necklace warmth and character and complements the gems.
    • I have used a gold on silver toggle clasp which is easy to use and quite secure. My silver name label is attached to the clasp.
    • The necklace comes, like all my necklaces, with its own colour coordinated silk brocaded pouch bag made by a Shanghai tailor.
    • The necklace is 17 inches long with a 2¾ inch pendant drop.

    • On a handmade silk/polyester band in a khaki colour, hangs a well carved natural Burmese jade pendant in which the craftsman has utilized the two contrasting colours of stone, the caramel and celadon tones. The carving illustrates a mythical beast, or 'Qilin', crawling his way through lotus pods. The pods symbolize purity, perfection and fruitfulness, which the qilin hopes to possess.
    • Above and below the pendant are two vintage, traditionally crafted,18ct gold on silver on hardened resin beads (7mm). These are made in Afghanistan, based on ancient techniques learned from the Greeks. Even with a tiny size, the artisan has taken the trouble to etch and gadroon these beads. I love the warmth of the yellow gold as well as the attention to detail in this work.
    • Just below the band is a natural, apple green Burma jade bead (9mm) and hanging at the bottom is a faceted teardrop of heat treated chalcedony (13mm).
    • The clasp is a 14ct gold on silver toggle clasp. I prefer using toggle clasps  because they are easy to use and quite secure.
    • The necklace comes, like all my necklaces, with its own colour coordinated silk brocaded pouch bag, made by a Shanghai tailor.
    • The necklace is 17¾ inches long with a 3¼ inch pendant drop.

    £290.00

    • A handmade, toffee coloured, silk/polyester band supports a deeply carved peapod tied to a double gourd made of natural blue, lustrous chalcedony (1½ inches long x 1 inch wide). Above the peapods are two vintage, traditionally made gold on silver on hardened resin beads, crafted in Afghanistan. The smaller bead is 7.5 mm and the larger one is 8.8 mm. A nugget of whisky coloured natural amber sits on top of the smaller gold bead, and this is followed by another natural, lustrous chalcedony bead (12 mm).
    • The double gourd tied to a peapod has a specific symbolism for the Chinese. The double gourd is an emblem of healing and longevity, while the peapod symbolizes fruitfulness and promise.
    • The vintage gold handmade beads from Afghanistan have been made using their tradtional techniques. These beads are 18ct gold on silver on hardened resin. The Afghan have been crafting gold for centuries. When Alexander the Great came to Afghanistan his people brought many skills, one of which was working in gold.
