This necklace was inspired by the delicate balance between opposing forces in the common flower garden—the dance between insect pest and prey, the contrast between soft petals and spiny thorns, the tension between human desire to cultivate certain species and to control wild species. Like these opposing forces, Verdant Harmony is at once both soft and jagged, feminine and masculine. There are enough beads in the kit to create 9 rings on each side of the necklace for a 25″+ necklace. For additional length, the double toggle can be made longer. This kit is for the lilac colorway as pictured in the photos.
