Lots of layers of Greek Leather in browns and blacks, .5 - 1.5mm strands. I hand knotted charms, flowers, butterflys and a bumble bee (some Sterling and some just Silver Plate) onto the different strands. I thougth this added some depth to the necklace. I anchored it with a beautiful larger Silver flower focal pendant. I saw this at a bead show and couldn't resist it! It measures 18" but is adjustable to a little longer for your neckline. I really love this! (I guess besides Turquoise and antique brass) I have a thing for Greek Leather!
