This unique necklace is convertible; it has several jump rings along its length that allow for it to be worn as either a long necklace or a choker. At the center of the necklace a long chain “ladder” hangs down that is filled with rows embellished with turquoise, cobalt, gold, and wooden seed beads – invoking the colors of the sea & earth. The ladder ends in golden chain fringe for extra style and movement. Made of nickel-free, lead-free brass, the necklace is adjustable between 16” and 22”. Handmade by marginalized women artisans in India who are improving their lives through fair trade.
