Iris 8


Joyce Katuari designed this stately necklace by combining two popular weaves and joining them as one. The beaded units of captive Turkish Round twinkle similarly to the iris of an eye. The Open Round weave connects each Iris unit together and creates a beautiful chain in between the units. Take this eight-unit necklace and create it in the colorway of your choice.
