Take one very old Mongolian Ottoman Chinese earring, complete with ancient bits of fabric which may have replaced original stones, add it to a strand of ancient pink corral and some vintage silver Turkoman beads and a couple of late 1800’s Venetian beads to tie in the colour, a pair of old silver and coral cones from Uzbekistan, some clear beads from Bohemia, and you definitely have a Silk Road necklace, unique in every respect. Finished with old African clear seed beads and a sterling silver clasp.

As with all my creations, this is a unique, individual, one off that took me hours and hours to get just right. I collect all my components by scrabbling in souks and hessian bags and dusty shops for the most unique treasures my dealers can part with. All my pieces have little dings, dents, and signs of wear from their global journeys and age, which add to their charm. You will be the new custodian of a piece of wearable art, that has its own story. Imagine if these beads could speak.
