    Comments about Kantha Necklace:

    This is the second time I ordered this item. The first time I loved the design and the fit, and I thought it was a dramatic piece I would love to wear. But the particular necklace I received was dull in color, with very little red in the material. I sent it back and exchanged it for another one, and I am now happy that the new one is somewhat more dynamic. With necklaces made from various pieces of silk, one takes a chance. But I am now a happy customer!

    Comments about Kantha Necklace:

    Since these necklaces are made from old kimonos, the colors include patterns (part of their charm). I ordered one in black and almost all the beads were quite dark, blacks and greys, almosts no reds or whites. I looked online and saw the necklace there in much different beads. There were whites and reds among the blacks and greys. So I called customer service and they allowed me to make a simple exchange of one black necklace for another. I'm taking a chance that the new one will have more variety. My only criticism that the original seamstress could have chosen her fabrics to have more variety in the first place. But a very nice necklace in all. And everybody will notice you--if that's what you like.

          I love, love, love this necklace. I wear it often and get many compliments and inquiries about it and the artist. Liked it so much I have ordered another one in a different color. Five star for sure!

          Love these Necklaces

          Comments about Kantha Necklace:

          Ordered both the black/white with red accents, and the pumpkin/orange/salmon necklaces. I was going to give the pumpkin one away to a Friend for her birthday, but have decided to keep them both! They are so lightweight, and so unique. I get compliments every time I wear them by Friends and Strangers alike. One of a kind accessory.

          Totally Unique

          By 

          from Olympia, WA

          Comments about Kantha Necklace:

          I look forward to wearing it with two different outfits, maybe more. It's so lightweight, you'll forget you have it on...except people will stop to admire it. I wish I were as creative as this artist, but I'm happy to share/wear her work.

          So cute and lightweight

          Comments about Kantha Necklace:

          I reordered this necklace, already had it in the blue tones. So many people ask about it and are always surprised that it weighs next to nothing. It's a nice piece for travel, super cute.

          Very Wabi-Sabi

          By 

          from Sherman Oaks, Ca.

          Comments about Kantha Necklace:

          I think it is lovely. The stitching on the fabric gives it an extra dimension that is very wabi-sabi.
          My only comment to improve the piece would be to use a better quality black bead spacer...perhaps a matte onyx round.
