The main body of the necklace is formed of thin tubular beads alternating with small disc-shaped beads of red, yellow and black. At the centre of the necklace, the disc-shaped beads are double-stacked, and tubular beads link outwards from the main thread diagonally to form triangular protrusions. At the tip of each triangle are two yellow disc-shaped beads, except for the centre triangle which holds red disc-shaped beads.
