Heavy metals

About this design:

It started with a stone circle with chocolately brown and topaz stripes, and two flat disc brown and gold circle beads - I'm not sure of their material but they're very light (maybe resin?).

The assymetrical sides feature dulI gold seed and shiny bronze seed beads, wood or bamboo beads (the latter were also used in the previous project, number 27), and Czech fire polish beads in a golden amber and a smoky brown.

The necklace is strung on 10lb brown hemp cord, with gunmetal wire wraps, antique brass jump rings, brass chain and an antique copper toggle clasp.

Heavy metal indeed.
