What a great gift

This wonderful necklace from South Africa and given to me by our friends who were staying recently, is hand made. If you look carefully you'll see that all the larger 'beads' both round and oval, are made completely out of tiny strips of paper. It's a real work of art which I'm loving wearing.
There is a lot of interest in this shot Hilary, it has lovely detail, texture, colour and form, which just draws you right in. Excellent.

Wonderful necklace, so colorful. I did notice they were made of paper when I looked at the thumbnail.

Thanks everyone. We're out in SA in January visiting friends and relatives, so hoping we'll get to meet the lady who made this.

WOW -- this is a beautiful necklace and a fabulous gift. The colors are wonderful and the more you look the more little details you can see.
Love it.

Beautiful colors and a great choice to take a close-up so we can see the paper. I'm sure you enjoy wearing this for its artistry and as a token of your friends' affection.

I used to make those "beads" with my daughter when she was a little girl. But these are precious.
