Asian Amulet Pendant, Pre-Owned, Came from an Old Estate Jade Collection, I Made into Necklace


The pendant is an Asian Amulet...don't know where it comes from or how old it is ... What I do know is that it is most like old jade that has been carved. I bought it from a Jade dealer who buys old estates to get the jade. There were 2 of these included and I purchased them from him. They have Asian writing, which an Asian lady who saw them, told me was not modern Chinese, but old Chinese writing. The have a Mongul look to them as well. It is not a heavy piece, rather fairly light....and the front has a picture while the back has the writing. I wish I could tell you more, but this is all I know about them. I have shown them to many people and no one could really identify them, not even friend who has worked on the "Antiques Road Show." So I shall refer to them as my Asian Amulet Mysteries! This is the first of two.

I used Red Coral, along with some old beads made of a type of carved brown jade bound with some sort of silver metal, and used white antique shell beads as well. The color contrasts make it a very interesting piece to wear. I made the backing for the pendant out of copper, using "Form Folding" metalsmithing techniques to create it. You can slip the stone to the side, allowing the back to show so you can see the writing on it. I designed it that way on purpose.

The pendant alone is 3.5" x 2.5" at the widest point. and the necklace from the back to the top of the pendant is 28" long. I love the way all the colors compliment each other and liven up the neutral color of the pendant and its framing. The tassel is made with a large chunk of red coral and a old Tibetan shell bead.

This piece is truly a statement piece and tells a wonderful story. If you know anything about it, please convo me and let me know. I would love to know more about its origin.
