Measurements: 30 inches total length -- five strands -- weight: 5 ounces
When I first purchased this five strand necklace from a local estate I thought the beads were made of wood. But under magnification, I came to think instead that the beads were made from nut shell segments. I’m still not completely certain.
I am assuming that the colors were created using natural dyes. Such natural dyes fade easily when exposed to the sun. The fading gives this necklace a very special appeal. The five strands allow the necklace to drape softly and/or to form sensuous knots.
No damages. No missing beads as far as I can tell. Recently restrung.
