Described by customers as having the look and feel of velvet or suede. That's how the grey, unpolished and natural water buffalo horn presents itself. The shiny, black and silky feel is how the horn appears when polished. These pumpkin shaped beads are both with matte red coral for a pop of color. 20" in length with and easy on pewter toggle clasp. Recycle records give the piece great texture without adding weight.
