"Not Wearable"

This large necklace came in a small bag, very stiff and out of shape. I had to soak it in water to try and change its shape. Still extremely stiff and uncomfortable. I decided to soak it in hot water to soften. Bad idea. It dyed my sink teal blue, and some of the strands started to unravel. I will never be able to wear this necklace. What happens if I start to sweat and my neck turns blue? For me, it's a total loss and a waste of money. Makes me sad, as I had high expectations.
