This 10 strand beaded necklace can be worn with the strands loose and flowing or with the strands twisted like a rope. The necklace is 19 1/2 inches long. The earrings are fun earring they have many strands enough that I did not want to count. They are 2 inches long and flow and swing. A lovely clump of beads and so black. The earrings are clip and have a little rubber tips for comfort. For you from the High Plains of Kansas.
