If you are looking for a simple piece that makes a bold statement, this is the perfect necklace! The color stands out, especially against a neutral, but the design is subdued and simple. Necklace length: about 19″. I wish I knew what type of material the beads are made out of, but I really have no idea. They look like stone.

I bought this necklace in the Bogyoke Market in Yangon, Myanmar. It’s a giant covered market filled with hundreds of individual vendors selling a confusing array of jewelry, gem stones, fans, lacquer ware, shoes, umbrellas, artwork, carved wooden animals, scarves, longyis, purses, and all kinds of other goods. There’s no AC, so you can imagine what the temperatures are like in the middle of the hot season, but it’s actually one of my favorite places to shop and bargain.
