"The Rocket's Red Glare"

About this design:

My love for the USA and her beautiful flag inspired me to create "The Rocket's Red Glare." I incorporated three kinds of vintage Venetian glass beads into the design. I used 17 sapphire blue 10x20 ovals, 4 reds of different shapes and 9 white of various sizes and shapes. I also used 5 fantastic blue moonstones from Afghan Tribal Arts. The moonstones have silver bead caps and several different spacers were used. I finished the piece with a twisted toggle clasp.
