Daring Howlite and Brass Designer Necklace (WHT-012)
Miriam designed this bold necklace for the woman who dares to defy the ordinary. By combining large slices of Natural White Howlite with Nuggets that have an intricate and natural black matrix, she created an exotic necklace that will put you in the spotlight. No two stones are alike and all are reversible, but Miriam’s eye for symmetry and style provide a balanced look that rests beautifully on any neckline. Wear it on a turtleneck sweater, or a jewel, U, square or V neck shirt. It looks heavy, but is remarkably lightweight and comfortable.
