Honey Snake Spring

About this design:

When I got my batch of the matte finished snakeskin agate, there were a few pieces that stood out due to their pale honey color. I added some Czech fire polished glass spacers in a hematite color to break it up. And the rest, as they say, is history!


Sterling toggle clasp, snakeskin agate in a matte finish, modern Czech fire polished beads, 49 strand beadalon, Sterling nipple, crimp and crimp cover

    Beauty – I’ll bet Harmony on Strings will like this one!! It looks like it would go great with everything – my kind of bracelet! Using the hematite is a pleasant surprise too.

    This is lovely, and powerful at the same time. I really love the crackle affect in the Snakeskin Agate. Fabulous.

    Thank you for the kind words! The snake skin agate came from (TA-DA and drum roll here) Lima Beads. Most are darker but I LOVE them all.
