This collar necklace has a unique crochet openwork design at the bottom, with brightly colored shell beads woven throughout. In keeping with the nature theme, I've finished it off with an antique silver leaf toggle clasp, so that if you have short hair, or wear your hair up, the back of this piece also attracts attention. Or, if you prefer, you could wear the necklace with the clasp in front. I like to use attractive clasps, in order to give my customers this option. This necklace has been fashioned from cotton thread and natural shell beads, and the color scheme is reminiscent of the beach/seashore. As with most of my pieces, this is lightweight, and will not weigh you down or pull on your neck. I try to design my jewelry to be comfortable, as well as beautiful and stylish. Measurements: The length of this piece is approximately 16", including the clasp, so this sits comfortably at the base of your neck. The width at the widest part of the necklace is 1 3/4". This necklace is available for worldwide shipping. Thank you for visiting my shop, and please let me know if you have any questions.
