Vintage Olive Green Coral Unakite Bead Necklace, Vintage Chinese Porcelain, Handmade Brass Bead-Anjali Mudra
Vintage coral jade green unakite stone beads, Vintage Chinese porcelain flower beads, Brass
This is a very long and substantial necklace. It is certainly not a delicate look but one of substance and features numerous shapes of unakite interspersed with vintage handmade brass beads from Pakistan that have a wonderful nubby texture. We actually purchased these beads when we were in Pakistan during a buying trip ( you can read about this amazing trip on my blog if you are interested www.debbyaremdesigns.com )
They measure approximately 25mm in diameter or just about 1" in width and are framed by vintage buffalo horn beads for another shape and texture.
The hand painted black porcelain beads have dark burgundy colored flowers painted on them which are outlined in gold. These beads are also approximately 1" in diameter and stand out nicely against the shiny textured brass.
► Mudras are hand gestures used in yoga and meditation that focus and direct energy. Anjali Mudra is sometimes referred to as prayer position, and is used often in yoga asana practices when one is centering oneself.
► Unakite is considered a balancing stone. It is said to help unify the emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of yourself, making it an excellent stone for those seeking a well-rounded balanced existence. Unakite also is believed to help us to live in the present instead of dwelling on the past - something always practiced and stressed in yoga.
► All the stone beads which I use were personally selected by me in Hong Kong during the 1970s-1980s when the standards of cutting were meticulous. Nowadays, stone beads are being cut and imported from India where the labor is cheap, the beads are not always perfectly round, nor do they have an even polish and many times they are not even drilled all the way through .
This necklace has been hand knotted on silk cord which has been dyed to match the unakite beads. It measures approximately 36" long .
▶ This necklace will arrive gift wrapped in a lovely vintage Chinese embroidered silk brocade purse all ready for gift giving

IMPORTANT NOTICE: POSTAGE RATES HAVE RISEN DRAMATICALLY IN 2016
ORDERS INSIDE USA: A charge of $3.60 covers any first class shipment up to 8 ounces. Our beads vary so much in weight that it is impossible for us to apply a single add-on charge for multiple product orders. We will continue to refund to customers any amount that greatly exceeds our actual cost of shipping and handling.
ORDERS OUTSIDE USA: International First Class rates are now crazy: $13.50 for any package weighing from 1-8 ounces. Even an order for 2-3 small bead items may cost $13.50 or more, depending on the type of material (stone versus resin, for example). Please bear with us for a few weeks while we change our listings to account for the new rates. We apologize in advance if we have to adjust the postage cost of an order that has been placed. We will understand if an order is rescinded when the postage cost is too high relative to the product value.
All international orders have contents described as "loose beads" and are flagged as "commercial samples" or " gift" if you prefer to make your life easier when receiving your beads. If you'd like us to mark your order as " gift" instead please let us know!
All our beads are inspected one by one before being shipped. They are individually wrapped to protect them and then put in little plastic ziploc bags.

Lovely color;!interesting stones.
When I thought that I had ordered two of these and then checked out I had to order another set. The seller was very kind and combined my two orders and refunded my shipping.
Nice quick shipping on some hard to find items! Good packaging too!
