Carnelian and Copper Necklace

About this design:

I saw these Carnelian beads on LB during the Crossword Puzzle days - love Carnelian! I needed beads that would compliment the Fire Agate teardrops that I purchased much earlier.

This necklace is the result of my purchase!

It is posted on my shop www.secondsisteratmoarkjewelry.


Faceted Carnelian combines with copper puffed coin beads, copper keishi spacers, copper colored crystal rondelles and a hammered antiqued clasp. I wire wrapped the Fire Agate teardrops and highlighted them by having them dangle in the front. I think the copper beads and crystals soften the effect of the Carnelian beads and pull this design together.
