Necklace from Pristina

I realized that I haven't posted a picture of this. When we were out fabric shopping a week ago Saturday, I saw this necklace in a jeweler's window and commented on how I liked it. My host dragged me into the shop to find its price. It was relatively inexpensive and is completely hand made. The filigree flowers were made in Prizren, home of a long tradition of filigree. The jeweler himself put it together into a necklace and, it turns out, it's not really a necklace, even if it was displayed that way. It's a chain for a belly dancing costume, to wear at the bottom of the skimpy bodice. That's why there are extra rings - to put dangling things on it. Anyway, I like it and it's a perfect necklace for me.
