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.
1000markets.com.

Components:

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.
