VINTAGE 1970's 1980's
READY TO WEAR
or CUT NECKLACE APART for the BEADS
to use in your own projects
I personally have been selling this OX bone necklace for over 40 years.
Looks and feels almost like Ivory.
Measures 18"inches long.
Approx. 78 round beads.
Graduating down from 12mm. to 6mm., each bead is hand carved with a flower design (see photo).
All natural color beads, made in China (not India) so the workmanship is Superior.
Hand carved matching open/close Ox bone screw clasp finishes off the piece.
Necklace is vintage, brand new, clean, smooth without pitted flaws like carvings from India.
Original stringing could use an update restring or cut the string and use the individual beads in your own projects.
Bone coloring varies from off white to a yellowing patina.
I have no control over the original stringing and the normal aging process of the OX bone.
Necklaces are vintage from the 1960's and 1970's.
With the worldwide ban on the harvesting and sale of all Ivory of any kind the craftsmen from this small village in China now use OX bone because of it's similarities in hardness, texture, color and feel to that of IVORY.
