This one of a kind necklace features a small but audaciously mighty old silver Ethiopian cross pendant with the most extraordinary faceted opaline glass trade beads from Mali. With the most glorious shades of sky blue, these exquisite glass beads were traded throughout Northern Africa. You can see the history in each of these rare beads and the smoky blues look fantastic with the patina of the old silver cross pendant. And depending on the light, the old glass beads will change from opaque milky blues to translucent desert sand hues.

All other elements and clasp in this necklace are sterling silver.

Truly a unique piece to treasure.

Finished length: 30.5” (77cm)
