Ancient Glass Inspired long hand knotted necklace with carnelian pendant
I absolutely adore the look of ancient Roman glass. Whenever I see it in museums along with the dates, I am always astounded. There is sits like a thread through time, a constant reminder that humanity survives, no matter the struggles. The light continues to shine on. So this piece is paying tribute to those lovely artifact fragments. It has the look of ancient glass that I created using polymer clay. Hanging from the glass inspired piece is an amazing piece of faceted carnelian. The total pendant length (polymer and stone) is 3.25". The hand knotted chain is made of silk and genuine African beads. It is an adjustable length of 24"-26" long.
