Ivory beads

Recommended Posts

Cali Craft and Gems

Strange request I know, but I have been approached by the curator at our local museum to see if I can try to restore a vintage ivory necklace from 1780!!!

 

I have worked out (from viewing images on Google) that there is at least one missing smaller elephant, and there are a few round beads missing too.

 

Does anyone have any odds and ends laying around that they would not mind parting with?

 

Many thanks.

 

(apologies for poor image - cellphone camera is not the greatest!)

I have a bracelet that I made out of small ivory elephant charms, each one hand carved. Each elephant is about 1,2 cm in height. I don't think they are vintage. I was given the charms about ten years ago and put them onto a silver chain. Would you be interested in these?
