Ruby Crazy Lace Agate Necklace

About this design:

Inspired by the pretty ruby crazy lace agate beads I had. I didn't know what to do with them for the longest time...so I made a polymer clay bead to match them and added clusters of lovely pearls and sparkling Swarovski crystals. Vermeil and 14k gold-filled findings add richness to the piece.


Ruby Crazy Lace Agate, polymer clay, pearls, swarovski crystals, vermeil, 14k gold-filled
