This Artisan Beaded Necklace is a glass-bead necklace handmade in Thailand and can be worn several different ways — even as a multi-stranded bracelet.
Here’s a picture I took using it as a bracelet. It really is gorgeous!
When worn as a single strand necklace, it’s about 22 inches long. I had it wrapped around my wrist 5 times, with plenty of room to spare. It was comfortable to wear, not too heavy. It also caught my daughters attention, “What’s that? What’s that??” It is quite eye-catching.
This Christmas, consider sending gifts from the World Vision Gift Catalog
