Face bead and carnelian necklace. The face bead has a lineage back to Roman beads or even before. This bead is conteporary and was made in Java.I have posted an image of an old Roman face bead for comparison. The face bead has two faces. The detail photo shows the other side
Below the face is a colar and above she has a hat made from shell carved like a flower. The strand is 3 mm carnelian beads. The tie is plaited German silk.
I have written about the history and techniques of making facebeads in my Musings blog.
