19". 36 strands of pale pink glass beads were strung before being attached to the knitted closure. Bamboo Skewers were used to knit in order to achieve the tightness needed for a perfect closure.
In my box of things I had found this coin with holes already drilled in it. Doing research I discovered that it is a British East India Company 1/4 Anna from 1908. It's made from bronze and on the backside there is the likeness of Edward VII with the words "Edward VII King & Emperor". Undrilled it would be worth anywhere between $25 to $500. Alas - the holes were already drilled when it was in an auction box I purchased.
So - I made a closure for this necklace out of it.
