Now, this necklace's design is perhaps as understated as is uncommon: after the failure of many candidate-beads (gold, silver, wood, stones...) all of them diverting the attention towards their petty selves, the suleimani are strung here with tiny ringlets made out of a rusty iron wire.
Tibetans (well known for being bhaisajyaguru beads lovers) do regard iron as Heaven-sent, using it for amulets since who knows when. And rust is on many iron surfaces as hummus on the soil, or wrinkles on a wise old woman face!
I am attaching two more pics of the same project, the photos slightly improved.
