The color palette for this natural jasper necklace was inspired by the range of hues and earthy textures found in the central Chinese countryside. But the design comes from Mandarin court necklaces that were popular during the early years of the Qing dynasty (1644–1911). These elaborate strings of beads and charms were said to be inspired by Tibetan mala beads given to Emperor Shunzhi by the Dalai Lama. This versatile necklace illustrates how something as simple as a strand of beads can connect cultures. Natural, undyed jasper beads and gold-plated brass spacers. Handmade in China.
