Ringed Kashmiri Beaded Necklace

About this design:

I received these shell ring beads as a gift. It took me a bit, but I think I figured out a way to use them to showcase the shells and the kashmiri beads. It's actually really lightweight. I hope you like it. I mixed the colors with the purples and greens to try and highlight the purplish hue in the darker shell ring beads.
