I don't really have a clue what this is made out of. I have had it for years and worn it often, and it still looks great. I never looked at it close and really thought they were faux painted wooden beads. When I decided to sell it and started looking I see that there is a seam on each bead. The gold tone 1 1/2" metal bar pin has a brushed finish, and the back a "C" clasp type closure. The beaded bunch hangs down 3". I'm going to let the pictures tell the rest of the story.
