These are old necklaces from the mountains of Guatemala. Each has obviously been restrung many times keeping the old beads and supplementing with new beads. The colors are wonderful and many of them are strung with real artistry. I've restrung these, maintaining the original beads and design and added a sterling silver clasp at the back and some lovely Otomi pompoms. All the beads are either sterling silver or old crystal.

Metaphysical properties of ammonite:
The Ammonite is a very powerful earth healing fossil. Its spiral shape symbolizes continual change and evolution. Ammonites have absorbed cosmic energy over eons of time and help to stimulate the life force (Chi) within. Ammonites are often used for activating Kundalini and life path energies. The Ammonite is also often recommended to put in the home to attract health, prosperity and success.
