If only jewelry could talk!

I was reading the recent e-newsletter from Art jewelry magazine yesterday where publisher Linda, tells a story about loving flea markets and talks about one of her great finds. That reminded me of my wonderful find a few weeks ago here in Oakville. A church very close to my home has an annual "free garage sale" Yes, you heard me correctly. Everything is FREE!! Since my husband and I were up early anyway, we decided to wander over and have a look.

I found this beautiful piece looking for a new home. As you can see in the 1st photo it is made up of a series of loops of beeds that twist slightly as they make their way around. The total length is almost 36" so it actually hangs down 17" when worn and it is about 1 1/2" across at the widest point. The photo with my hand in it is just to help give an idea of the scale.
I would love to know the history of this piece. If only jewelry could talk!!
