arata necklace no. 2

This necklace from Etsy seller yellowplum (that's me!) was handcrafted using a traditional Native American beadweaving technique called gourd stitch. Tiny beads are woven together, one at a time, with a needle and thread to create beaded beads. Materials include Japanese glass seed beads, and sterling silver beadcaps, chain and infinity clasp.
