This stunning necklace is striking enough to be a statement piece, yet it is lightweight and elegant. Handmade by women in a fair trade cooperative in Thailand, it consists of several layers of woven gold silk thread, semi-precious stones and glass beads. The adjustable clasp allows for it to be worn at varying lengths.
