The dynamic design of this mens choker centers on a focal bead with a stylized vine carved to reveal the white color beneath. The brown hue of the skillfully carved focal bead is picked up by the magnesite tube beads which comprise the basis of the necklace. The magnesite beads are mottled deep browns and saturated greens. I interspersed gold plate Tierra Cast disc beads and sand colored bone beads to create contrast and separated the magnesite beads with trios of dark brown rondelle bone beads. A bronze hook clasp completes the design.
The necklace measures 19 inches in length, and the focal bead measures 1 ½ inches. In early American history magnesite was used as currency as well as jewelry. It has also been used traditionally to assist in meditation and creative visualization. This choker features magnesite in a design that is both bold and dynamic.
