Additional Information
Inspired by the beautiful shape of ancient amphorae, the body of the amphora is richly decorated with a combination of fire-polished beads, baby melon beads, and seed beads. A luxurious tassel from the point of the amphora emphasizes the elegance of the sumptuous shape. A resplendent rope of various seed beads and spacers simulate the vertical “handles” of an amphora and forms a luxurious necklace to suspend the equally opulent amphora.
