The pink, yellow and orange colors compliment each other and influences the mood to be light. Measures 45.5" and comes with one end knotted and the other free to remove beads to accommodate the waist. Everything is smooth and I am enjoying this strand as well.

The amber brown and white colors compliment each other and therefore compliment my waist. Measures 38" and comes with one end knotted and the other free to remove beads to accommodate the waist. Love it! Now I am inspired to make more. Thank you!
