This necklace was inspired by some fun combinations of beads and natural materials I have been wanting to try out for awhile. I made this necklace using red coral, coconut shell beads, bleached (to sterilize) fish vertebrae, spiny oyster, tiny freshwater pearls and some glass and stone beads of various colors just for fun! 'The Independence' would be perfect for day or evening wear for men and ladies. It was made specifically to be worn by ANYONE! Looks great chilling at the beach or the pool, at the tiki bar or for a night out! Goes perfectly with bikinis, boardshorts, button-downs, Hawai'ian shirts, or a little black dress. We don't discriminate. This necklace is about 10.25" at the shortest strand when worn. Middle strand is approx. 11" Longest strand 11.50-11.75" It is strung by hand on fine wire. It is finished with clear beads and a spring ring closure. Any other questions, please let me know!
