HOPS NECKLACE - DANGLE PEARLS
The humbling beginnings of Hops started as a naturally-growing bitter botanical used by the ancient Romans. Its soothing and relaxing quality became a cure to all to treat common ailments. It wasn't until 822AD in Northern France at a Benedictine monastery that its brewing aspect was incorporated in the making of beer. Now an essential part of the beer-making process, this amber nectar known the world over has been enjoyed by many ever since!
Materials: The necklace is cast in hand patinated bronze with accents of matte gold buds on a string of pale golden freshwater pearls.
