About this design:

I picture myself wearing this on vacation to Bali. Red lantern beads are surrounded by white howlite coins and finished with an antique silver toggle clasp.

    This a beautiful statement piece. I must say that Howlite has never inspired me for some reason. have just changed my mind. Isn’t it interesting how a special design can make you feel differently about a stone?
    It’s definately a great piece to wear on an Exotic location like Bali!

    Thank you. It came out better than I imagined in my mind. I thought the red was a nice “pop” to the white.

    LOVE it! And howlite is one of my faves (well, it’s monochrome… :-) ). Goes well with black linen thread too…
