Vintage Item of the Week - September 17th

Vintage 1960s Necklace / Multi Strand Necklace / Amber Necklace

https://www.etsy.com/listing/110560464/vintage-1960s-necklace-multi-strand?ref=shop_home_active

I love the design of this amber and cream vintage 1960s multi-strand necklace. It's made up of six strands of small oval beads in alternating cream and amber, 3/4th the way down the necklace all the strands come together and connect to two large amber circle beads and one large white bead and then the six strands pick up again.

So retro and yet would be perfect with any Fall outfit today!
