These necklaces were worn in the Harague/Ogadin ,Ethiopian and Somalian region.and most probably Yemen.Very rare.
They have the quiet beauty. The most left one should have bells, which must look were they are hiding.

Thank you Betty.  These are unusual mostly the large beaded necklaces are mostly on  woolen strings with sometimes two very large lovely smooth beads with a couple of large glass or antique red resin beads. So they are quite  rare by now.   Like you said, we do miss good deals in our life.  Gr. Ingrid.

I love those beads too, still mourning the one and only occasion when I could of obtained some of them at a very reasonable price... but how much nicer would it be to have a whole chain with them. Very beautiful items, Ingrid!
