Podular Botanical Necklace

About this design:

Copied from my Etsy listing, sorry to sound sales-pitchy :9 :
This necklace is full of carefully handmade beads that could easily be mistaken for objects from the forests floor, as well as several beautiful gemstone beads, sanded peach pits, and wood.
Gemstone beads on this highly unique and one of a kind necklace include yellow opal, tourmaline, African turquoise, Madagascar green jade, and rhyolite (rain forest jasper.
All handmade beads are made by myself and include polymer beads and pendants, stoneware ceramic beads, and lampwork beads.
The unique toggle clasp is made from copper plated pewter.
This necklace measures 21 in (53.3cm).
