I've been getting the tribal island vibe looking at some of the exotic beads and components I found in Tucson and I have just created this bold, exotic and dramatic Irian Jaya Jewelry Collection. The deep tones of rusty ambers, grays, antiqued gold, vintage brass, exotic carved jade and Tibetan prayer beads bring mystery and intrigue and an earthy, ancient aura to this tribal-inspired jewelry collection. Many of the pieces have pops of bright yellow, orange, silver and brass adding a little modernity to the collection. Each one of these pieces is a one-of-a-kind piece of artisan jewelry and a main event you will be coordinating your outfit around!
This intriguing and ethnic necklace features a stunning vintage carved jade dragon medallion, a vintage large carved jade bead, beautiful Tibetan rust amber resin, African brass from Nigeria, a unique carved brass bead from Kathmandu and a large hammered Tibetan brass bead. It measures about 19" in length and has a 4" extender chain.
A second version I made per request is also pictured. This one is a little longer and does not have the extender chain.
