Saxon spindle whorl necklace

Dramatic necklace featuring an attractive lead Saxon whorl from the 'dark ages' with typical Saxon raised pellet decoration. These items were commonly used in weaving over a 500 year period and are often difficult to date to any period more specific than 8th/14th Century. We have inserted a garnet into the centre.The garnet beaded necklace is 52cm- 58cm long(adjustable using an extension chain at the back).  (The lead whorl has been carefully varnished to render it safe to wear.)
