Perfect for the summer or the cooler months, double layer white and gold necklace!
This listing is for the two necklaces, they are not joined so you have the option of wearing them both to layer up or on their own, allowing you to play around with your style and mood.
The choker is made of white vinyl disc beads with gold plated (over brass) spacer beads. The necklace is approximately 41 centimetres long with a 2 inch gold plated extension chain, taking the full length to approximately 46 centimetres.
The white enamel star charm hangs on a gold vermeil curb link chain (vermeil is gold plated sterling silver). The chain is 18 inches in length and also has a 2 inch gold plated extension chain.
Have fun with this funky necklace!
I love working with vinyl disc beads. They maybe tiny and fiddly and I need to take breaks when working with them, 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 Also known as African Vulcanite beads because they were originally made from vulcanized rubber, now they are more commonly made from using recycled phono records cut up in a sequin-like fashion.
