This necklace is a bit of a mix between two areas in South America. The Tairona carnelian beads give great energy to the silver pieces from Peru - all preColumbian/preHispanic. The hollow silver men are very delicate so if you would like to clean them you must be very gentle. The necklace is 18 inches around and has a central bead pendant of 2 1/4 inches. The tubular bead itself is slightly over 1 3/4 inches long.
