This is a wonderful example of Candace Loheed work. She is the top designer for a California based company that started in the 1970's and produced unique and one of a kind ceramic pieces, sometimes plain ceramic beaded necklaces and other times with a bold center piece, such as this. This necklace has blue, black and white striped, and pastel pink tube beads. Also there are round white beads and huge crackled yellow beads all giving way to the center piece which is a striped tropical fish with detailed fins, a yellow head and pink fish lips. The center piece fish measures 4 3/4" in length and 2 1/4" tall and the total length of the necklace is 18 1/2" with a secure barrel closure. Has the famous CANDACE LOHEED and RUBY Z signature bead. Ready to be part of your collection and worn with pride. Lovely condition. This necklace will arrive in a jewelry box for safe travel and safe keeping.
