Capim Brazilian Golden Grass Necklace / Choker
Brazilian Golden Grass Choker Style Necklace, Handmade in Sao Paulo
This highly fashionable necklace is hand made from Capim, a grass found in the northeastern states of Brazil which has the amazing quality of being a totally natural gold colour. The grass is woven by local artisans into an amazing variety of products, from jewellery to bags and many other decorative items.
This particular style is the very latest fashion in Brazil and we have it for sale here before it reaches many of the boutiques in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.
It is very difficult to show in photographs the beautiful rich tones of natures 'vegetable gold' but it has an incredibly warm lustre that equals that of its metallic cousin, and the intricate way it is woven together, leaving a hole in the centre, results in a truly outstanding piece of jewellery that is perfect for the beach or an evening out alike.
This choker style necklace is fastened using a trigger clasp which is clipped onto a length of chain making it adjustable from 44 to 47cm.
These are not mass produced items so they do vary a little in colour, size and shape but the main pendant body is about 60mm across.
