My friend's great grandmother traveled quite a bit. These beads have been rattling around her family for as long as anyone can remember.
A hand written note suggests that the stone hoops are ancient carnelian earrings. Hardware has been attached to them to make them work in the necklace.
When might the faience beads have been made?
The findings look like tourist items.
The necklace is strung on silk which is now quite fragile.
