Absolutely amazing Japan Demi completely done in shells & beads. The stunning 4-strand alternates the darker abalone chunks, MOP chunks and golden seed beads to create a beautiful bib style choker. Even the bar ends that the 4 ends are gathered into are carved out of shell. The necklace measures 12-13-14-15 inches with 3 1/2" extender on one side and 1/2" plus fish hook signed JAPAN on the other. In excellent condition. The wire wrap bracelet came with the necklace and uses the same shells, but different beads, so I do not know if it was made at the same time. The outer rows of the wire have the alternating colors of shell and round beige beads, not gold bugle type like the necklace. Then between the 2 wire wraps going up and down are rows filled with shells including long carved ones. These are at the center. This is a cuff style, so will fit an average wrist. In excellent, vintage condition. Even has the dangling shells on ends. This entire set is probably handmade.
