Kikuko Necklace

The Kikuko necklace is named after a dear Ishinomaki friend who is a grandma, friend, helper, and chef. Before the tsunami, Kikuko-san worked as a fishing net mender. Her skills proved helpful, and she was one of the fastest at stringing these necklaces when we first designed them. In the early days, the Nozomi "workshop" was in Kikuko's neighborhood, and she frequently brought over breakfast for everyone. Kikuko doesn't work for us anymore, but her kind and generous legacy lives on! 

Smooth semi-precious stone beads are strikingly beautiful and matched with smoothed pendants to create this elegant necklace. Silver toggle clasp. 18” long.
