Ivory Necklace - Commission

Index     Commission Work

The Commissioner was unsatisfied with a previous restringing of her antique ivory necklace (done elsewhere!). In particular she disliked the artificial pearls added, and at 48.5 cms it was too short.
As it happened I had an "on behalf" antique ivory necklace for sale. This had been assessed as being at least 70 years old, and possibly dated from the late 1800s. The ivory had been hand carved into a graduated series of beads and a twist-barrel fastener.
Despite the completely different carving styles, they worked well together, and the colour match was near-perfect. Final length - 80cm.
