Vintage Leopard Skin Jasper Necklace, Chinese Zodiac Coin,Serpentine


Vintage top quality amber gold black pink leopard skin jasper,Vintage Chinese carved amber serpentine Vintage German Picasso GlassVintage reproduction Chinese Zodiac coin

◉ I originally designed this museum quality hand knotted leopard skin jasper beaded necklace for the Sackler Gallery's museum shop ( the Smithsonian's Asian Museum) during the mid 1980s - it features top top quality leopard skin jasper beads in 10mm, 12mm and 20mm ( there are 25m to the inch )

There are 2 shades of leopard skin jasper -amber golden black, and pinkish grey black- to pick up the tones in the vintage glass Picasso beads as well as the ornately carved serpentine This statement piece necklace measures approximately 30" long necklace - with the brass coin , total length is approximately 32".

◉ We personally selected these beads in Hong Kong while on a buying trip in the 1980s and they are all beautifully cut and polished as the quality of workmanship in Asia in the 1980s was meticulous. Nowadays stone beads are being cut and exported from India where labor is cheap and the beads quite often are not perfectly round, not evenly polished and many times not even drilled through the center of the bead !

Gorgeous vintage Chinese carved serpentine beads in a honey amber color , as well as vintage German Picasso glass beads from the 1950s add texture as do the vintage African brass and copper spacer beads found through out.

The 2" solid brass coin was purchased in the 1970s and is a reproduction of an original coin which has the zodiac on one side and Chinese lettering on the other. I've tried to show this in the photos.

This necklace was knotted on silk cord which I dyed a very pale pink to blend with the leopard skin jasper beads in the 10mm size that go around the back of your neck.

It will arrive in a vintage Chinese embroidered silk brocade purse all ready for gift giving.

Love my beads! The coloring in the epidote was not as intense as illustrated, but it is certainly a good example of the mineral. The colors in the unakite beads are wonderful. The quality of the carving I would rate as good to excellent.

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.
