This necklace has a delicate bird bone, a carved Chinese bead, a shell fish and a donut (pi) stone of gray on creamy white with accents of red that pick up the color of the carved bead. The stone is very attractive, being 1 1/2 inches across with a soft, random patterning that looks almost like solidified dreams and memories of that day at the sea, including that old Chinese fisherman way down the beach, playing his flute. The knotted linen cord, fastened with slider beads, holds the donut stone 14 inches below the knot when at full extension. When the ends are tightened as much as possible, the stone is 10 1/2 inches below the knot. About three inches above the stone, the bird bone makes a bridge across from one side of the cord to the other, and the cord then continues down to the stone, where it is held in place with simple lines of red wirework. The wirework passes through a bead at the pi stone's center and continues down to connect to the wire on which the carved, reddish, Chinese bead is mounted. Right below that is the delicate fish carved from shell. The fish is creamy white, too, and silky to the touch.
