It's a jungle of contrasts out there--not-so-awesome days include touches of beauty, great news can be tinged with sadness, rays of sun may peek out of gray rain clouds. As tribute to the paradoxes of life, we mixed beads of bright, vibrant green with black, throwing in some patterned lovelies for good measure. (Glass, jasper, magnesite, onyx, and lava comprise the composition of five strands.) We love the assortment of texture, form, and colors--true to life and all it brings. Measures 18" with a silvered copper toggle clasp at back.
