This necklace which hangs by thin black leather straps is composed of one large half-bead of amber with a gold-toned bead in the center, surrounded by a collar of leather embellished by violet thread and black and gold colored balls. Around the leather disk are small feathers. A large casade of multi-colored and varied feathers hang in a cascade below the beaded motif. All these elements are attached to a piece of leather on the back.
