Frida wore a lot of amazing accessories and her necklaces really stood out. She wore so many different styles including large beaded necklaces made of handcrafted beads native to Mexico. She was photographed more than once in this necklace and she painted herself wearing it in Self Portrait with Braid. While she painted it as a black necklace, it is actually made up of green stones, perhaps jade or some other kind of stone found in Mexico? I don’t know but it’s amazing ♥ I would wear this… would you?
