In the early '90s, when fake Naga stuff was generated (I suppose mainly in Indian factories), among the first pieces were multi-strand necklaces, that were immediately misrepresented as being "Naga." I was not in the least surprised, when I had an opportunity to examine some of these, that the fiber closure WAS a crocheted panel—into which the strands of seedbeads had been sewn. I predicted this would happen (!).
This is the primary way to distinguish between an authentic Naga piece, and a factory-made imitation, of that class of necklace.
Good luck with your project. I will be interested to see it.
