New Jewels~

My latest craze in beads is African Glass Beads.  Reading about how glass beads were valued in Africa, they were considered an exotic technology because they were unknown there at the time.  They soon began wearing the beads as a custom.  The ones I have used in this colorful set are yellow stripe, and beautiful! 

The focal point on the necklace, which measures 17 inches, is an aqua crackle agate nugget (35mm) pendant, wire wrapped, to bring out the beauty of the stone.  6mm Aqua beads, 10mm Red Coral glass beads, Aqua seed beads, and antique silver spacers complete this stunning necklace.  It is so unique in fact, that I decided to create a matching bracelet for the perfect set!  This beautiful jewelry will be listed in my Etsy Shop before the 20th of February!
