The only word to describe this item is luscious! BIG plastic beads swirled with transparent red and opaque white, separated by 1/4 inch goldtone spacer beads. I swear this piece looks almost edible! Measures about 18" long. Please take into consideration when considering size, that the thickness of the necklace (each bead is at least 3/4" in diameter!) means that it will fit approximately like a 17" inch chain fits you.
