The central aaja (3”L x .4”W x 2.25”H), or crescent shaped pendant, is a symbol of fertility and abundance, along the blossoms that run up each side of the necklace, decorated with silver leaves, twisted rope and dots. Strung on a double strand of bench-made silver beads with traditional hook and eye clasp. Unsigned.
