Olho-de-Boi - Oxen Eye Pendant

The unusual pendant is made with a dried rind of a fruit or flower I cannot discover the name -- which makes it even more interesting. The smooth and bright carnelian bead looks like an unlikely pit for such a fruit, but it dangles from it happily. The oxen eye seed is red/dark orange and adds another form and texture to the composition. Unfortunately, I cannot find the dried rind anywhere to buy, so this is truly one of a kind. The metal chain is about 30 inches long and has a lobster clasp; the pendant is 3 inches long.
