This necklace was inspired by the mythological Siren/Mermaid AND some fun combinations of beads and natural materials I have been wanting to play around with for awhile. I made this necklace using materials it looked like a mermaid/siren might be able to acquire. Some red coral, shells, fish vertebrae (bleached to sterilize), lava rock, pearls and some glass and stone baubles 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 15". 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!
