I love this necklace and I have tried to recreate it with no luck. But I will keep on trying. The stone has been drilled with three holes and sterling silver has been put into the holes and balled with one including a silver star. The chain is made of sterling silver and has the look of bones or bamboo, depending on how you want to look at it. All of the sterling has been oxidized and polished. The necklace measures 17" or 44 cm long.
