Bulgaria…..silver alloy head ornament or pectoral….from Yambol Province (according to Maria Veleva "Bulgarian National Costumes and Jewellery" book), but possibly closer south to Greece/Macedonia/Rhodopes mountains…..late 19th century. From the collection of Tesori Orientali.
Crochet euro-style. Lots of beads around the rope. (Dutch?) Nice pix; needs translation. Note the position of the hook to the threads and beads. #seed #bead #tutorial
