This is a short choker made from hand-turned disk beads and strung in banded stripe color combinations. Using a combination of shell and stone beads, these necklaces rely on a rich diversity of colors. Pula Calabaza makes some lively color combinations with these hand-turned beads.
This necklace is strung on Beadalon stringing wire for maximum durability. Beadalon is a nylon-sleeved braided steel wire. The smooth coating of nylon allows the beads to slide freely on the string and makes for a nice "hang." At the same time, the polyurethane coating prevents the wire from wearing and chipping the beads and prevents the beads from wearing out the string.
Materials: Kingman turquoise, pipestone, jet, apple coral, melon shell & white clam shell
Diameter of beads: 1/4" to 5/8"
