A black leather cord allows the colorful beadwork on this one really punch out. The adjustable cord ties in the back, bringing this close to the neck or lower on the torso. Components include Southwest turquoise, ancient African trade beads and red globe glass beads, large red resin oval, a modern ceramic piece, and hand-crafted African tribal silver bead. This one-of-a-kind necklace is charmed with drop down components from Africa, Afghanistan, and India.
