Components: the purple and green I reallu don't know, they feel smooth like silk, but don't get scratched up like I think silk would. The green chips are peridot, silver seed beads, clear glass seed beads, and the odd shaped multi colored ones are I believe some sort of glass, I used both silver and gold findings, like the lobster clasps for the interchangeable bracelet focal.
