I wanted a 16 - 18" unique beaded necklace that I could wear any tim, but especially with casual clothes and around the house. I found this one in Novica's African collection and was immediately taken with it It's made up of bauxite stones with two cat's eye beads. After I tried it on and wore it for the rest of the day, I removed it but continued to hold it and stroke the stones; they felt very nice and soothing. It is heavier than most necklaces you're probably used to (it is an ore that is mined for its aluminum content), but I liked the feel of it on my neck. If you want a unique, lovely necklace that can be worn for any occasion, this is it.
This is my first necklace which lists recycled plastic as a component and I didn't quite know what to expect. As it turns out, this is a beautiful, high quality necklace with wonderful workmanship and great attention to detail. Love, love, love it.
