"A really unique piece."

The violet torsade necklace is a beautiful, natural creation. With no metal pieces, it is carefully strung and woven into a light weight, feminine piece that looks like understated elegance. The price was right and its a pleasure to wear.

"Beautiful colors!"

This necklace is perfect! The colors are beautiful and the necklace is (surprisingly) very lightweight. I appreciate that it can be worn at two different lengths. It feels very well-made. Highly recommend!

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I can t wear hardly any jewelry around my neck due to pain & a condition I have. This necklace was so light & a beautiful color I wore it a lot last summer. I wish I could find it in another color.It was beaded so perfectly.It is brighter and the color was pink not purplish as it looks in the picture. I had so many compliments !!!
