Kaleidoscope of Gems


About this design:

The bail is handmade of sterling silver wire. I made this beautiful necklace using a few different Jasper beads, faceted Smoky Quartz and Czech Fire Polished Glass. I individually wrapped each bead securely and meticulously with sterling silver wire to form a chain. The chain is finished with a hand crafted sterling silver eye and hook clasp. The elegant feeling of this necklace is fantastic.

Components:

Smoky Quartz, Czech Fire polished Beads, Blue Impression Jasper, Yellow Jasper,
