I decided to have a change from looking at the UK Ebay and went onto the German Ebay.
This pendant caught my eye, I think it is really pretty. It's marked 800, continental silver and the makers mark is MM. I would say it is Art and Craft, nouveau. The chain is connected to bale which is in a flower design with a Green paste stone. From this hangs a triangular shaped pendant which has a large blister pearl, surrounded by 3 smaller blister pearls and 3 Green paste stones, set in silver filigree, I don't know if this is the correct name for this type of work. At the bottom hangs another pearl. All the stones and pearls are in bezel settings.
I've been looking at makers mark but can't find the one on this necklace. At first I thought the pendant was German, now I'm thinking more on the lines of Austro Hungarian, I have seen many similar designs from this area.
Many thanks for looking

    Although it resemble a lot of Austro -Hungarian jewelry I think this is a peasant German pendant. The back of the Austro jewelry has other patrons. But I like it very much!

    I would have thought Austro-Hungarian, but Agram is right in that the back looks unusual. Also the 800 mark points towards Germany. In any case, beautiful find!

    Many thanks Agram.m, BellaEpoque and shareurpassion.
    After doing a lot of research I still think this necklace is Austro-Hungarian. I'm putting three links on below, one as a similar back to mine, another is a very similar design, and one is to show that the Austro-Hungarian used 800 Silver. Sorry I've had to put three links on the reason I couldn't find a pendant with all three, lol
