Winter Solstice Collection - Tunga
Exceptional detail is incorporated by combining the flame-worked pendant in a handcrafted piece with sterling silver wire work, Japanese glass seed beads, and vintage Bali-Silver accent beads. The latch is handmade from sterling-silver as well.
This piece features a hand dyed silk ribbon for a bright touch.
Necklace is about 16" in length.
