I adore this necklace! The quality and craftsmanship are second to none. I love the weight of this necklace, heavy enough to feel substantial but not weighed down. The size and shape of the pendant are perfectly tactile. The stone and metal both feel cool at first but then absorb and retain the warmth of your skin. It easily dresses up or down, and makes such a statement! The earth tones of the stone compliment my complexion and I love the variations in each individual bead. I am finding it goes with so many different outfits. This is my first Susan Shaw piece and it definitely won't be the last!
