One of three extremely rare antique tribal necklaces.
Handcrafted traditional piece from the Mizo Hilltribes. [Mizoram is in North East India and borders Myanmar]
Restrung with metal parts in the 70s.
Material of the bead / elements is unknown - have asked several people to help with identification but no one knows for sure.
Acquired on a trip to Mizoram in 2011
And certainly a striking piece on a white or beige background.
