The beads of this all-wood choker necklace are lovely, almost-black “tiger ebony,” a renewable hardwood from the Philippines. They form a ruffled shape when clasped about the neck. The lovely elephant pendant is a Japanese ojime bead, hand carved from boxwood. The elephant is wonderfully detailed and very realistic. This choker necklace is closed with an interesting hammered TierraCast clasp with a gold finish.
