Beautiful Hard to find Necklace from Yemen.
This dramatic Yemeni Bedouin Amulet Necklace was handcrafted in Saana Yemen using old beads and a large amulet from the early 1900's.

Their designs and techniques are found throughout Central Asia even today, where they have been emulated for centuries

It is deliberately hollow, crafted for storing and amplifying the precious prayers, wishes, and secrets of the wearer. It is flanked by 2 traditional Yemeni globe beads.
