The beadweaving technique used to create the beaded bead of this necklace is called dutch spiral or circular peyote. The spiral occurs because you are working with a set of graduated seed beads. Fun to make and fun to wear.The necklace pictured here is composed of Turquoise, blues, browns, earth meets water.....yummy.The 7"/18cm beaded bead is hollow and can be strung on any necklace you like. I comes with a soft brown nylon cord with adjustable silver plated clasp that is 17"/43cm to 19"/49cm
