Carnelian and rock crystal necklace.

A necklace based particularly on finds from 11-13th c Russia, but that could fit in many other places and times.

Cornerless carnelian rectangles paired with rock crystal rounds and squished rounds. This is strung on modern plasticized cable with a purchased clasp.
