This classically ethnic necklace was handcrafted using "Vulcan Beads", shell, glass beads, clay beads incised with pleasing geometric designs and cilindric bone beads with classic "Eye" design repeated several time.
Curious note: Vulcan Beads are also known as Black Spirits Beads, because were traditionally made from old phonograph records that were believed to hold the spirit of the person's voice that was recorded.
The "Eye" beads were (and are) highly valued in many traditional cultures worldwide as strong talismans to deflect the "Evil Eye" or malevolent intent back to its origin.
