Eighteen transparent prystal bakelite drops in heptahedron (7-sided) shapes dangle from double layers of brass chain. The expected machining grooves are visible where the beads were carved to drill holes. The transparent Catalin beads include these colors: apple juice yellow, bold orange, bright red, grass green, olive green (with some color zoning) and teal or forest green. All but two of the beads are suspended from textured round brass beads. The other two beads hang directly from the book chain.
