Ghana Agate

About this design:

A friend asked me to create a necklace from some very large agate beads she purchased in Ghana. I struggled with the design for quite awhile because she is a very petite lady and the beads so heavy. I finally chose the three smallest pieces and added other accent beads and oxidized silver chain. She's quite happy with it and so am I.
