Roman-style Lapis and Tiger Eye Necklace

I recently made this Roman-style necklace for a friend who loves Tiger Eye. The stones are lapis and tiger eye, strung on tiger tail.

The necklace style was inspired by some found in Pompeii.

(Glass bead necklaces; Fig 20 and 22 in ''Women and Beauty in Pompeii" by Antonio d'Ambrosio)

I'm pleased to say that the necklace looks lovely with my friend's beautiful new handmade tunica.
