This necklace came with us to Morocco and dotted our days with its whimsy. More on that here: http://comusetravels.com/2014/09/19/peruvian-gourd-necklace/
I purchased this necklace for my mother for Christmas. She loves gourds, so this necklace was beyond perfect. She's told me that she's received many compliments when wearing it. The presentation box is lovely and tells the story behind the necklace along with photos of the steps involved in making it. Truly a unique and beautiful piece of jewelry.
