This beautiful necklace is made up of a string of hollowed jade beads.

This is a buffalo bone necklace from Thailand, the beads are not finely polished giving a more natural wooden look.  The hook and closure are made with buffalo horn.  Buffalo has been a part of the traditional Thai agricultural for a long time, they helped to do the laboriousness task of ploughing the paddy field, a treasure livestock for the farmers.  The horns, bones and hide are used for many traditional crafts.
