    An interesting bone necklace, as you can see some beads have pretty carvings, especially the 2 with tiny elephants. not sure if the necklace is vintage, or not - and if this is possibly asian in origin?
    I have found a necklace with similar carvings and style here:

    What do you think, is it possible that my necklace is from Tibet?

      Hopefully someone will be able to answer your question, lentilka, I don't know enough about these necklaces to help.

      I'm only guessing here, but I've seen similar with the carved small disc beads and the same kind of barrel screw clasp from Africa, so I thought African rather than Asian when I first saw it.

      Some of them are dyed, I have one that's dyed an orange colour and I've seen some dyed brown. (Mine doesn't have patterns carved on the beads but has the same small disc beads on either side of the clasp.)
      It's lovely, wherever it came from!
