The first thing you will notice about this design is how diverse each series of bead sequence is arranged. Working with large creams luster and yellow picasso magatama beads (aka - dragon beads) with brown travertine rizo beads, Transparent Ruby Small Drops and various earth tone beads makes this a statement necklace. Normally the center of focal section draws the eye in - but here we used the entire length to dazzle. The necklace is finished with a silver metallic magnet end cap that is substantial and strong.
This one-of-a-kind necklace can not be replicated - it is outrageously fun. . Our necklaces feel wonderful to wear and require little to almost no care by using a clean dry towel every few months to keep dust free and bright.
This beautiful hand-crafted style necklace was made using hundreds of glass beads from around the world that are meticulously loaded onto multiple cords that are woven then together on a Japanese marudai braiding stand.
