This necklace was designed for and worn by fashion icon and American businesswoman Iris Apfel. This piece is part of a series which highlights prayer beads made from Sheesham wood covered in remnants of upcycled silk sari colored in beautiful muted Earth tones such as moss and terracotta. It is hand-finished with cotton thread after each bead making every piece unique. The thirteen strands have open ties so the necklace can be worn at any length. For your reference the beaded area is approximately 13″ at the shortest string, 25″ at the longest string, and 51″ including the straps. For care, spot clean only.
