Found these handsome beads today and had to have them. They are really amazing to me...can anyone tell me how they were made, where and when? I'll post another image showing the entire necklace. Is there any significance to the arrangement of this necklace, or is it just a pretty tourist item? As always thanks for sharing your knowledge!
