A mid-sized necklace

featuring ancient bronze pieces:  a Merovingian buckle with glass inlays (Frankish - 5th century a.d.), two Romano-British enameled bronze brooches (1st - 5th cent. a.d.) With ancient beads of bronze, carnelian, and glass.

Notes:

The Merovingians were the ruling family of the Franks from the middle of the 5th century until 751 a.d., who united all the Franks and northern Gaulish Romans by 509 a.d.
