This is an opulent take on a Desert Primitive talisman necklace.  It glows with the warm light of baroque pearl and old shell, ancient crystal and hammered bronze.  I created a finely-stitched cord of soft deer hide for the pendant, which gives it a soft, luxurious feel as it gently supports the pendant while worn.  

Seven amulets hang from a lovely antique New Guinea shell currency in the shape of the sacred spiral.  The focal point is a luminous polished geode sparkling with tiny crystal points within.  The outside is at least as beautiful, aglow with swirls of translucent agate.  To its left is a long tongue of polished petrified palm with soft striations, suspended from my own handmade bronze link which was impressed with a fossil crionid.  Next to it is a very ancient bead of clear quartz from Central Asia.  Further left is a polished tooth from St. Lawrence Island, Alaska that is very old, either from a seal or walrus.  Pre Columbian beads and an antique Mauritanian shell amulet are on the links above it.  On the far left is a large, teardrop shaped baroque pearl.  To the right of the geode is another antique shell amulet from Mauritania with subtle striations, and one of my bronze discs that I molded from White Sands, NM soaptree yucca bark.   

The bronze links are all hammered on desert rock, lightly oxidized and hand finished to a soft glow.  The leather cord was cut and stitched entirely by hand with fine nylon thread; a day's work, there are about 20 stitches to the inch.  It is wrapped with more hammered bronze wire just above the pendant.

SIZE:  The necklace measures 22", or 55.5 cm, from the back of your neck to the bottom of the talismans when worn.  The talisman bundle including the shell currency is 6 1/8" or 15.5 cm long.

CARE:   The entire necklace, cord and all, can be rinsed in cool water to clean.  Spot clean the leather with a designated leather cleaner if necessary.  Avoid hanging in sun to prevent fading.  Dark marks created on the shell components by the bronze can be removed by washing or with rubbing alcohol.
