About this design:

I thought I'd give sterling silver sheet metal a try. It was fun cutting, hammering and oxidizing the focal piece. I sell most of my designs, but I just might keep this one for me!

Components:

Sterling silver, spider web jasper (?)

    This is really cool. Your mystery beads look like the gray version of the olive fire agate I just received last week.
