Long Sleek Black Onyx & Agate

About this design:

My girl friend wanted a necklace to wear with a black suit. She wanted it to be long and fantastic she said. What do I know (well I know I can do long) she also specified black/white. She mostly wears yellow gold jewelry but some silver also. I tried to give her the best of both metals without going overboard. Laying on the table this necklace measures approximately 17 inches and the silver chain measures about 11 1/2 inches.


Black Onyx, Black Agate, Pearly white glass pearls, lacy open work fancy silver balls, silver spacer daisys, antique golden rondells, silver seed beads between the pearls and silver {to keep it less likely to get scratched), silver double cable chain and silver clasp.
