I call this my artisan Magnificent necklace of Many Colors, when I found these unusual cultured pearls beads I grabbed every strand. This necklace consists of small fat potato and rice shapes which are strung between the one of a kind pearl "branches" of matching colors, some dyed of course. Not sure how they cultured the branch shapes, but aren't they wonderful! The longest branch bead measures 1 & 3/4" long as a dangling bead of course, and the rice and potato shapes range in size up to 1/2" long. Strung on white silk and knotted , with a silver tone metal clasp. This necklace measures 31" around. Please note the long branch pearls could break if dropped on a hard surface due to their shape.
