Description
A delicate tracery of floral patterns adorns the central disk of this ancient jewel; four long chains with golden links terminate in beads of colorful glass. This piece was never intended to adorn the shy or meek; it is an ornament full of movement and life, which surely belonged to an equally vibrant woman. Though she has vanished into the mists of time, when we hold her treasured ornament we cannot help but remember her. As we set the pendant chains swaying, we imagine how it looked in the lamplight on some long-forgotten evening. - (SJ.0209)
