A beautiful necklace made of vintage Cherry Amber Faturan beads strung with hemp. There are a total of 35 beads. The total length is approximately 33 long.
There is no clasp and the jute is tied and wrapped at the end. The beads are NOT uniformed. Some are more square and some more rectangular.An average size is 22mm x 18mm. The weight is a whopping 225 grams.
I do not know the origin or history of the beads. I tested one bead (on the top side near hole) with sand paper and it tested positive as Faturan. There are a few loose strands on the jute and may have some faint scratches on the beads.
