With a sniff and a sneer a mid-range jeweler pointed out that my treasure's chain and clasp are "base metal" and its individual beads are not set apart by knots; but I love this necklace that I obtained at a backwoods garage sale out of Oakland, Maine. It was essentially given to me for $1.00. It is one of a kind and now it is mine.
