New items. These pendants were made in Iran and represent reliefs from the walls and monuments from Persepolis (Takht-e Jamshid) in Iran. The site dates from Achaemenian times. The beads include Chinese turquoise nuggets from Hubei and hand carved carnelian and Afghan jade beads. The color combination of the beads reminds me of Persian carpets.
