Hoshi Star Necklace by iluxo on Etsy
The cut-out design on this necklace is a traditional pattern that you can find everywhere in Japan, if you look for it. I first became aware of this pattern when I admired it on a luxurious kimono silk that was passed down to me from my family. Since then, I've noticed it on product packaging, origami, stationary, and even manhole covers. The simple geometric pattern is simultaneously rich with culture and tradition, but has a very modern and contemporary look. This round pendant is cut from sheets of bamboo. The 1mm chain is wire-wrapped with glass faceted beads in a light lavender color. The chain is 14K gold plated and 18" long and extendable up to 21". An opalite drop adorns the end of the chain, making the back of the necklace just as lovely as the front. The pendant is about an inch in diameter.
