This stunning tropical hard wood necklace is a unique design that was hand crafted in Costa Rica. I purchased it in the 1990s, in Grecia, Costa Rica.
The day is fast approaching when women will wish they had to foresight
to collect vintage wood bead necklaces. Not every wood bead necklace,
but those composed of unique vintage beads from various types of wood
from around the world. They are fast becoming hard to find but many
people just dont know anything about old wood beads.
The necklace is made of elliptical carved wood shapes in alternating tropical hard wood colors of light and dark browns and red and purple. The top section of the necklace has dark wood nugget beads. I wont go into the names of the types of hard woods used here but they are very illusive and only come from this part of central America.
When clasped, the necklace is 18" or 46 cm long. The elliptical oval beads range in size from 1 " to 2 1/2" long or 23 mm to 64 mm.
The entire necklace is in pristine clean like new condition with no imperfections or flaws. The wood is wax polished and there are no scratches, scuffs, or chips. The necklace is not signed.
Comes gift wrapped and shipped in a new presentation necklace box.
