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 they are strung with real artistry.
I believed these to be glass but I was told that they are made of some kind of synthetic crystal.
Beautiful necklace of Guatemalan jade and guatemalita, designed as replicas of old beads worn by Frida Kahlo. Sterling silver hook closure. The beads are primarily guatemalita, a jadeite indigenous only to Guatemala, and its accented with a few pieces of Guatemalan jade.
