This fun necklace is made of a 1 1/4" metal washer with green and purple scrapbook paper on the front and a 2 toned purple damask- look paper with grapes on the back. It is covered with several coats of sealer to make it water resistant, but is not immersable in water. I have added several sizes and shapes of seed beads on the front to resemble grapes...we live in wine country, and these are popular souveniers! The pendant hangs from a lavender colored waxed linen cord with 2 purple beads adorning it. The cord opening is 14 1/2" approximately. So it hangs down below a neckline with no conflict with buttons, collars, etc.
