"necklace"

I wasn't too sure where to put this thread, but decided on the knowledge section because that is what I am seeking, is anyone knowing anything about this "necklace" I found about 5 or 6 years ago. I should tell you where I found it and the circumstances behind it.
I had a friend that was a roofer and they kept the roofing trucks at the dump, and he used to take a look at what all people had thrown away when they got back to the yard after work, He called me one day and said someone had dumped a lot of jewelry and purses and such. so I met him down there and we went through it all. Some of the oddest jewelry I have ever seen. And there must have been 100 or so purses. I am assuming the stuff belonged to the woman whose birth certificate I found in one of the purses, and on the line where it says "race" it was typed "colored". So, I'm guessing she must have been in her 90's.
any way...this is the necklace I would like to ask if anyone knows anything about. It almost looks like some sort of voodoo thing. It is obviously homemade, but intricate none the less.












it has little dolls every inch or so, in between the chili peppers.

Thats a neat story, and an interesting necklace.

if you took it on antiques roadshow, it'd either be worth almost nothing... or worth a ton.

I was going to say Santeria-related. Also, the thread title sounds dirty when you've just read through several threads in the sexuality section.

Those look to me like "worry dolls." My sister and I each had a box of them when we were very young.

Quote:
Worry dolls, or trouble dolls, are very small dolls originally made in Guatemala. A person (usually a child) who cannot sleep due to worrying can express their worries to a doll and place it under their pillow before going to sleep.

According to folklore, the doll is thought to worry in the person's place, thereby permitting the person to sleep peacefully. The person will wake up without their worries, which have been taken away by the dolls during the night.
