Necklace made of silver wire flattened at base (the wearer’s collarbone) to receive seventeen pendants. Of the latter, each has been bent in half; one part has been flattened into a leaf or raindrop shape, while the opposing end is enclosed with a small lump of clay having green or blue bottle glaze over a turquoise glaze. The overlapping ends of the necklace have a similar glazed treatment. (from card)
