Worn as a necklace once around the neck or 3 times around the wrist. When worn as a bracelet it looks like 3 different bracelets; when worn as a necklace the color blocks really pop! Red, turquoise and champagne colored Czech glass beads are meticulously double braided onto brown waxed Irish linen and are interspersed with silver plated bronze faceted beads. This is a very versatile piece that works fabulously for travel and adventuring or just a night out on the town. Layer away!
