Necklace with Beads of Green "Crackle," Hematite and Pink Fiber Optic Glass and with a Hematite Arrow Pendant

Happy Valentine’s Day!

This 27-inch necklace was a Valentine’s Day present for Vera. Strung on a single length of braided satin-gold color wire attached to a gold-plated spring-ring clasp, it features “exotic” wood squares and acrylic beads in one of the styles of Native-American painted pottery. 116 more words

Necklace with Wood Squares, White and Gray Glass Pearls, and Enameled Shell Pendant

The contrast of gray and white beads is more subtle than the pink and burgundy in the last piece, but I like it with this finding, which includes gray tones along with the white of the front and the brown showing through from the back. 193 more words
