In the late 60s my mother avoided the hippy revolution by spending her post-college years as an English teacher in Papua New Guinea. As children we loved pouring through her cedar-lined trunk, swaying our hips with her grass skirts, playing dress-up with the beaded necklaces and fingering the bones natives often wore in their noses for formal occasions. She told us that unmarried girls would wear a Hibiscus flower behind one of their ears (right, I think), then upon marriage switched them to the opposite ear. Fascinating.
I'm not suggesting you wear this necklace behind your ears, but you'll feel young, hip and beautiful with these pink turquoise stones and genuine coconut shell pendant and heishi beads. Looks great with a summer sundress or crisp white t-shirt. 16" to the pendant plus a 2" extender chain. SOLD
