White Cork Cord from Portugal makes this gift unique. The Cork is white and is pliable and has the texture of leather. The necklace is white with silver metal stations. The flower pendant and magnetic bow clasp are pewter. The matching bracelet also has similar stations and a magnetic bow clasp.
The necklace is 20" long and the pendant 2 " long and 1 1/2" wide. The intermittent stations are 10mm in size and there are four of them spaced about 3" apart and held in place with stoppers in white. The clasp is 1 " long and 1/2" wide at its maximum breadth. The bracelet is 8" long (clasp included).
It is a very contemporary piece and looks more art deco than my piece which I have had for over 5 years. It is a conversation piece in the office as cork is not generally associated with jewelry.
Care: Since the cork is treated it will last for a long time. However, like leather it would not take kindly to water and solutions. Chamois leather is what I use to clean my piece.
