Wood and metal bead detail
The Paz Necklace is a long set necklace with a bold and contemporary look. Coloured flat disk beads are crafted from wood to create subtle balance. Toward the front, these beads are interspersed with metallic flat beads in various sizes to give a textural aesthetic. Fixed at a long length, this necklace can be styled over neutral tones for a layered finish.
