Necklaces / Pendants by Jessica Briggs The longer length of this neckpiece [ 18.5 inches ] means that it can be comfortably worn over clothes rather than sitting on the neck. The individual elements are shaped following the pattern of the stripes, which makes the neckpiece catch the light as the wearer moves. The flexible cable neckwire is finished with a handmade catch.
