This beautiful handcrafted necklace is made by Syrian Armenian women now living in Armenia. Each handmade necklace plays a role in the preservation of traditional Western Armenian needlework techniques. Sivas/Svaz work is pure Armenian needlework based on counting-thread embroidery. It resembles tapestry and is often embroidered on luxurious etamine fabric. Copyright 2019 © Homeland Development Initiative Foundation.
