About this design:

To show you I use different colours too next to turquoise and purple here is a red one. This sponge coral necklace with a silver snails shell as the focus bead turned out to be a real eyecatcher.
Comes with a bracelet.


12 mm sponge coral beads, Thais silver snail shell.

    Great necklace! I have some of these sponge coral, but they are not consistently shaped, and it is difficult to match enough to make a necklace. You did a fantastic job, but how many strands did you have to buy to get this many nicely shaped ones? :)

    I agree with all the other comments. This is a wonderful piece. A real statement maker. The sponge coral is so very pretty and bright and the shell focal is just right. I love it.
