A striking, bold ethnic necklace…India silver…deep red garnet gemstone…white magnesite. This short style necklace is a strong, slightly asymmetrical piece that features a large India made silver & conch (naga) shell focal bead. The center bead is framed by faceted “diamond cut” garnet beads & the front facing, handmade sterling toggle clasp is off-set by a chunky old India silver bead. White magnesite sugar skull beads speak of Tibetan & Kali culture and the rest of the strung bead necklace includes more faceted & smooth garnet beads, smaller India silver beads, white magnesite rounds and silver Kenyan heishi.

Skull imagery & beads are used extensively in Hindu & Buddhist culture through India & Tibet. This interesting post gives more detail on that…The Symbolism of Skulls in Hinduism & Buddhism.

This earthy necklace measures 18.5″ (46.99 cm) in total length, including the toggle clasp.
