I started this necklace with a base rope of cubic right angle weave with purple/brown matte rainbow beads and then embellished it with a loopy fringe using a variety of purple seed beads and some amethyst, cat's eye, crystal and dagger beads as accents. Nestled into the center of the necklace is a sweet raku pottery bird surrounded by gold luster purple and copper bead embroidery and attached to the base rope. The 24" necklace has a vintage matte lilac Czech glass button as a closure. The bird is about 3" wide by 2" high and the center of the necklace with fringe is about 3.5" high.
Perfect for the bird lover and those who just love a lot of funky fringe!
