Yellow green turquoise gemstone donut is wire wrapped by me in tarnish resistant gold plated wire and beautifully set off with a custom handmade kumihimo (Japanese braiding technique) cord. I have made special matching coiled wire end caps and attached a gold plated toggle clasp.
This one of a kind necklace is approximately 21 inches (53.5cm) in length. Pendant section is approximately 2 1/2 inches long (6cm). The turquoise donut is 1 1/2 inches (40mm) in diameter. End caps are glued into place and also anchored by bending the end of the coil into the cord for added durability.
Kumihimo cord is braided with kelly green, olive green and antiqued gold satin cords. The width of the braiding and smoothness of the satin make this comfortable to wear all day long. The yellow turquoise donut is crossed with black/dark green veins as well as spots of creamy white in a yellow green base.
