This necklace is 3 hand crocheted beaded ropes made of Japanese seed beads that are matte finished & translucent lined with bronze. I love this type of bead! They have such a rich look to them. The pendant is three gold colored ginko leaves. It is actually an ornament created by the "Silver Seasons" studios that I re-purposed into a pendant by cutting off the long loop and re-fashioned and welded it into a smaller loop. It is suspended from a bail made of the same type of Japanese seed beads along with some matte finished gold cube beads. The pendant can be removed and the ropes worn alone. They can be twisted as shown or worn hanging loosely. Three necklaces in one!
