We've never been one to do the expected or the norm, going against the grain most moments in life when given the choice. The vintage buckle in red celluloid serves as a reminder of this attitude and approach with its wood grain design; it also serves as the necklace's clasp, which may be worn at the side for showing off, or at back if the beads are the main event. And why wouldn't they be? Five strands of striped African glass are a delight, and the addition of faceted brass beads from India add a hint of glamour without overdoing it. Measures 18" in length.
