He crafts the necklace by hand with ornate terracotta beads, as well as sese wood and blue beads recycled from different plastic sources.

"Pretty but..."

Loved my other necklace from Ila but this one is just a bit off. One of the large beads near the bone is drilled off center so it way out of line with the other beads. Just fair.
