Necklace of Flora and Botany

About this design:

Just copied this from my Etsy listing, sorry to sound sales-pitchy haha:
This necklace is full of carefully handmade beads that could easily be mistaken for objects from the forests floor, as well as an array of beautiful gemstone beads, and sanded peach pits.
Gemstone beads on this highly unique and one of a kind necklace include goldstone, tourmaline, african turquoise, amber, Golden Wooden Jasper, Yellow flourite, Madagascar Green Jade, Red aventurine, and various small gemstone beads used as spacers here and there.
All handmade beads are made by me and include ceramic stoneware beads (such as the focal pendant which is also sold on it's own in my shop), polymer beans, and polymer clay beads that have been hand painted with acrylics and sealed with a water based polyurethane.
It is finished with a handmade copper hook clasp, also hand formed by myself. It measures 26in in length (66cm).
