    I seem to be having a problem with the text. I have entered it twice. The shield and beads are Dragon Blood Jasper. The wires are gold and antique copper. I uploaded a close-up of the shield but it is not showing here.

    Thanks Fresh Baked and Kye! I don’t know if you can tell that I used both colored wires for the chain.

    I do see the alternating color of wire on the wrapped links in your chain–what a great effect! The focal piece is such a wonderful stone–beautiful necklace!
