Turquoise Choker with Trade Beads and Counterweight


Graduated disks of turquoise encircle a ring of green African trade beads with two splendid millefiore examples, and these green beads in turn nest around a string of blue-green watermelon beads. The colors are very cooling,  Here's my macramé closure with an antique Chines coin button and lo and behold- a long counterweight string of small African beads that end in a monkey token of brass.

This design is a medly of turquoise and trade beads with the surprise of the counterweight that you can wear down your back or forward over your shoulder to hang down in front.
