"8-strand Beaded Kumihimo "Spiral" Necklace with Handpainted Mandala - Harvest"
The Kumihimo beaded necklace with a handpainted ceramic mandala pendant is a beauty.
The beaded pattern is a simple spiral pattern that compliments, but does not take away from, the gorgeous Mandala design. The adjustable closure allows this necklace to be worn at whatever length pleases you. The shortest length is around 17” and the longest length is 26 1/2” (plus or minus).
