Original Message:   Re: Re: mother of pearl necklace era?
this kind of all-over mosaic of M. O. P. shell pieces securely stuck onto a shaped backing of darker shell or plastic and beautifully polished is very characteristic of the jewellery components produced in the Philippines from natural materials in around 70/80s onwards and the value doesn't depend on the age -its a craft they mastered well, and some of the design ideas may have been adapted subsequently by the chinese costume jewellery industry.
