Ceramic pendant necklace, 'Ornate Fan' (India)

Orange and gold create a striking combination in this beautiful beaded necklace by India's Deepti Lav. The pendant celebrates the traditional decorative hand fan, which was used in India as early as 500 B.C. The terracotta is molded into the desired shapes then double fired in a kiln. The artist hand-paints the finer details. A beaded closure makes this necklace adjustable.
