The cabochon in the pendant is Tiger Iron, which is composed of tiger's eye, red jasper, yellow jasper and black haematite. The undulating, contrasting bands of colour and lustre make for an attractive motif. The cabochon is surrounded by tiny Japanese seed beads and soutache braiding in brilliant yellows, orange and red and turquoise. Little orange crystals provide a touch of glamour and turquoise blue seed beads edge the piece. There is a 2.5" long fringe that is weighed down with crystals. The necklace is made of faceted tiger eye beads from Jaipur, and lost wax cast bronze beads from Africa. A leaf shaped toggle clasp to close. The necklace is 22" long.
