This collar was hand made in the U.S. by an artisan weaving one bead at a time with needle and beading thread. It looks great with everything from a little black dress to T shirt and jeans – a little bling and a lot of style!
This striking necklace contains about a bazillion seed beads in varying shades of white with silver accents. The clasp is sterling silver.
The length is 18 inches, but it fits like a choker of 15&1/2 to 16 inches, because the bead “spikes” go all the way around the wire core in a sumptuous froth of white and silver. The width at the center of the necklace is 2&1/2 inches.
Hand beading this design takes over 45 minutes per inch!

The inside circumference is 13&1/2 inches with a three inch extender chain. Spikes are 2&1/4 inches from neck edge to point,
