I'm a sucker for turquoise so I couldn't help but make a turquoise, white & silver necklace design!
This unisex necklace design is made with vinyl disc beads in turquoise and white, paired with silver tone spacer beads, finished with a lobster clasp, easy to take on and off.
Hailing from the villages of West Africa, these brightly coloured discs are modelled after traditional Ghanaian Coconut Beads. Also known as African Vulcanite beads because they were originally made from vulcanized rubber, now they are more commonly made from using recycled phono records cut up in a sequin-like fashion.
The necklace is approximately 42 centimetres long with a 2 inch silver plated extension chain, taking the full length to approximately 47 centimetres.
This necklace has larger 6mm vinyl disc beads than some of my other original multi colour 4mm designs.
